HARRISBURG, Pa. — Finding the right farm property can be a daunting task for a beginning farmer. Landowners looking for someone to lease or purchase their property are also looking for the correct person to take over the land. That’s why Pennsylvania Farm Link has unveiled a new website at www.pafarmlink.org that allows people to enter the Farm Link database online.
A listing of beginning farmers looking for opportunities as well as a list of landowners seeking someone to lease or purchase their property is available online.
The information is listed by reference number and interested parties need to contact Darlene Livingston, executive director of Pennsylvania Farm Link, at 717-705-2121 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Currently Pennsylvania Farm Link is holding a special promotion, and beginning farmers and landowners may enter the database free through Aug. 31. After that date the cost will be a one-time fee of $75.
Other key areas of website include:
• Resource Central, which provides links to business, legal, financial and other farm related topics.
• DairyLink, a separate database especially for dairy farm owners and those interested in dairying.
Creating opportunities. Pennsylvania Farm Link, a 501c3 non-profit, is dedicated to the mission of creating farming opportunities for the next generation; with the goal of ensuring Pennsylvania farmlands stay in farming.
