Financing Farmland Purchases

Depending on where you are in the process, buying and selling farmland can look very different. For beginning farmers, questions like “How can I afford to buy land?” and “How can I find affordable land?” are most pressing.  For farmers looking to retire, questions like “How can I find another farmer to buy my land?” and “How can I prepare to sell my farm?” are more important.

Below are resources to help farmers begin preparing for farm buying by exploring various financing options and guides to search for affordable land.  There are also farm transfer planning resources for farmers looking to retire and connect with a new generation of farmers.
