Attention South County Landowners! Have you ever considered making your land available for farming? When you make land available for farming you help secure a future for farming in Rhode Island. Farmers are looking for land to rent—from a small vegetable plot (instead of lawn!) to livestock or crops on unused farmland. Sustainable, productive uses for all or parts of your property can bring many rewards.

This free workshop will help you understand your land’s potential for farming and what goes into a good farming arrangement.

  • Realize benefits & opportunities
  • Identify your personal, financial & land use goals
  • Learn how to recruit a farmer-tenant
  • Hear from a private landowner & a farmer who is leasing land
