About FarmLink

About Us

Because the majority of Maine farmers are now of retirement age, getting new farmers onto the land is imperative. Many farmers who wish to retire do not have anyone to take over the farm. Likewise, many people who want to farm do not have the family or resources they need to get started. FarmLink is a collaborative endeavor connecting next generation farmers to the land and resources they need to keep Maine’s farms viable now and into the future.

FarmLink works with each party to fully understand their interests and needs. This personal contact and customized support, combined with the assistance of four program partners, has helped Maine FarmLink become a successful and effective program.

To date, Maine FarmLink has completed 56 links, representing 4,987 acres in 12 of Maine’s sixteen counties.
