Protecting Maine’s finite farmland from development and creating more affordable access to land for all farmers is key to ensuring that Maine has farmland and farmers to grow food for our region now and in the future.
Protecting Maine farmland with agricultural easements is the best tool we have to ensure that farmland will continue to be available for farming in the future, and can also create more affordable access to farmland.
Do you know of a farm for sale?
Through our Buy Protect Sell program we purchase farms that are at risk of being developed and falling out of agriculture or are unaffordable to farmers. Our Maine FarmLink program helps connect farmland owners with potential buyers and lessees.
Are you ready for a farm of your own? Or, do you need more land to expand your farm operation? Find farmland through our Maine FarmLink program.
By working with you to protect your farm with an easement, we are committed to your farm and farmland for the long haul. If you have purchased farmland that is already protected with an MFT easement, our Farmland Stewards can help you interpret the terms of the easement and steward your farm for the next chapter.
Our goal is not just to protect farmland, but to help farmers get on the land and thrive.
