Pursuant to Pub. Act No. 07-4, the Connecticut Department of Agriculture established a Farm Link program “to establish a database of farmers and agriculture land owners who intend to sell their farm operations or agricultural land.” The database is maintained by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture and is available online here.
The goal of the program is to help keep agriculture land in production by connecting those interested in buying Connecticut farmland with those that have an interest in selling valuable land currently in agriculture production. Both farm seekers and farm owners need to register for the program. You can find lists for both farm seekers and farm owners available online.
Farm Link also provides a myriad of educational materials and helpful links for both new farmers and old timers interesting in transferring their land. For example, the online database has useful information on farm transfer, estate planning, farm partnerships, and farm financing.
Have any Connecticut farmers used Farm Link? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts.
