Farmland Conservation Easements 101

If you’re a farmland owner or a farmer looking for land, there’s a legal tool you should know about – the farmland conservation easement.

If you are a landowner, a farmland conservation easement could help you to preserve farmland that is a family legacy. If you own the land you farm, an easement could also help you generate funds to reinvest in your farm operation and work out the best possible succession arrangement.

If you are a farmer who doesn’t own land, the farmland conservation easement can, in many cases (especially near urban areas), make a farmland purchase more affordable for you to buy.

Buying Rural Farmland 101

FINDING AND BUYING RURAL FARMLAND is not the same as finding and buying a house in a city or a suburb. So gear up to go about it in a wise way by attending this webinar. The three experienced speakers will cover everything from a good search strategy and how to find the right realtor to understanding the purchase process, assessing the total property package (including septic fields and wells), financing, appraisals, and even adjusting to rural life. Two hours isn’t enough time to cover everything, but you’ll come away with a much better understanding than you had coming in.
