We help 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.

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 and partners have raised all the funds needed to conserve Thompson-Finch Farm! Click here to learn more about this exciting project!
