The importance of recognizing the next generation of farmers: Joseph Klingelhutz, SILT farm specialist, Lyle Luzum, land donor, Will Lorentzen, Owner and Farmer at Jupiter Ridge Farm. Many beginning farmers can’t find long-term access to land, putting agroforestry far down their list of farming options. Long-term leases, ground leases and other innovative approaches can solve this problem while providing the many benefits of keeping roots in the ground. In this workshop, you’ll hear the story of a landowner who donated his entire heritage farm to a land trust dedicated to long-term leases. You’ll also hear from a young farmer about his experience with a long term ground lease in partnership with SILT.
