Pathways
Every farmer hopes to own their own property. But with high startup costs and sky-high land prices in places like California, it often doesn't make sense to purchase property before starting your farm business. Join the CCOF Foundation, California FarmLink, and the National Young Farmers Coalition for a webinar on May 21 that will guide you through the key steps in negotiating and composing a lease that has a built-in pathway to ownership. 
 
Learn about different types of lease structures, clauses, tactics that can lead to farm ownership, and how to position yourself financially to be able to execute a purchase option. Webinar speakers will also provide ideas on choosing a land tenure method that’s right for your growing organic farming business, and how to best position yourself to consider a possible farmland purchase in the future, including financial planning through the National Young Farmer Coalition’s Finding Farmland Calculator tool

This webinar is made possible by a Rural Business Development Grant from the USDA Division of Rural Development.
