PURDUE EXTENSION PROGRAM AIMS TO HELP FARMERS ACQUIRE MORE FARMLAND

Ready to grow your farm operation, but unsure how to acquire more land?  The Farmland for the Next Generation program currently being offered by Purdue Extension will help you achieve your land acquisition goals.

Farmland for the Next Generation is an interactive program series that addresses three paths to land access: leasing, purchasing, and receiving land through inheritance or gift.  It utilizes a skills-based approached that focuses on what people need to be able to do, not just on what they need to know.  This 5-session virtual workshop series will be offered on Monday evenings from February 21 – March 21 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm EST (5:30 – 7:30 pm CST). 

Purdue Extension Educators and industry professionals will be presenting a variety of topics throughout the 5 sessions that will help you achieve your land acquisition goals.  Some of the topics they will cover include:

  • Financial Readiness
  • Paths to Land Access
  • Finding Farmland
  • Assessing Farmland Suitability

The registration fee for this workshop is $50.  Individuals wanting to participate in this virtual workshop can sign up at .  The deadline for registration is February 14.

This curriculum was created by the American Farmland Trust, supported by a four-year Educational Enhancement grant from the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development program.

For more information, or if you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, contact Kathryn Weiss at 219-285-8620 ext. 2800 or weiss44@purdue.edu prior to the program.
