SADC & NOFA-NJ Regional Landowner Meetings

Making Your Land Available for Farming

The State Agriculture Development Committee (SADC) and the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFA-NJ) are sponsoring three regional meetings for landowners and farmers on March 7th, March 12th, and March 14th to discuss leasing experiences, resources, and opportunities. The meetings are designed for farmland owners who are interested in making their land available for farming as well as farmers who are interested in starting new lease relationships. If you attended last year’s meetings, please consider joining us again.  The March 2013 meetings will focus on new resources as well as creating new lease opportunities by connecting landowners and farmers.

Attendees will:
-Learn about the SADC’s new Leasing Guidebook and NOFA-NJ’s Beginner Farmer Program
-Hear from farmer speakers on the leasing needs and perspectives of farmers, and recommendations for landowners to consider
-Network with other landowners and farmers who are interested in leasing land
-Provide feedback to help shape the SADC’s development of new leasing resources and future programs
-Learn more about leasing opportunities through Farm Link and NOFA-NJ
