Whether you are a farmer or a farmland owner, our staff are available to talk with you via Zoom or phone about your search. 

Mike and Rob look at former crop land

Since Northeast Illinois FarmLink began in 2019, we have spoken with dozens of farmers and farmland owners to help them better understand where they are at in their farming or land stewardship journey and how to prioritize their plans going forward. During these calls we ask clarifying questions, offer advice on your search strategy, suggest ways to define your criteria, brainstorm useful connections, point you to valuable resources, and help you navigate practical next steps. 

Maybe you just created a FarmLink profile but aren’t sure where to go next. Maybe you are feeling isolated or stuck in your search. Maybe you just need someone to bounce ideas off of. This is why we are here. Your search is unique so there is no “one size fits all” approach that will work. We’d love to help you figure out what you need for your search.

Your goals and dreams around farmland matter. And because your search is unique, you shouldn’t follow a “one size fits all approach.” We want to help you in a way that’s right for you.  Send us a message below and we will schedule a time to connect with you soon.

Thank you both very much for connecting me to Mike...and for helping me understand the steps to take in the stage I am in. He certainly has a wealth of information and it was great to have such undivided time walking through the land with him. I may be able to start helping him 1-2x a month on the farm in exchange for valuable experience and growth in my knowledge of regenerative farm practices.

~ Javier, Farmer

Thank you so much for taking the time to come out to the farm and for your helpful insights.  Conversations such as what we had helped see more clearly what our challenges are and what steps we need to take to move forward.

~ Jean and Harry, Farmland Owners
