Overview

Farmland for a New Generation
As part of our mission to support a vibrant future for agriculture in our region, ASA has resources to offer landowners who have land available for sale or lease and to farmers who are looking for land. ASA participates as a Regional Navigator in the Farmland for a New Generation New York program which is sponsored by the American Farmland Trust and supported by funds from New York State. The goal of the program is to ensure the availability of farmland across New York State for the farmers of today and tomorrow. Regional Navigators offer training and one-on-one assistance for farmers and owners of agricultural land. Visit https://nyfarmlandfinder.org/home to search listings of farms available for sale or lease, farms looking for a farm partner or manager, as well as farmers looking for land, or contact Janet Britt in our office to find out more about the resources we offer.
