Helping farmers access farmland.

CLC’s work in support of agriculture combines farmland conservation techniques with farmland access programs to offer an array of options for helping to keep our local farms viable and in active production. To request CLC’s assistance with farmland protection, please contact Marissa Codey at or 518.392.5252, ext. 211.


Access to Land

As part of our efforts to help farmers access farmland, CLC operates a matching program through which we assist farmers and landowners with finding each other and establishing successful land tenure relationships. CLC maintains a database of farm seekers and available farms.Our farmland access program partners are the Dutchess Land Conservancy and the Hudson Valley Farmlink Network.

CLC is currently working with Thompson-Finch Farm and Equity Trust to raise funds to save the farm.
