Young Agrarians Releases Free Guide Assisting Farmers Seeking Land in Alberta

The Alberta Land Access Guide is a toolkit built by a team of experts and experienced farmers to help new farmers navigate their land search.

Young Agrarians (YA), a farmer-to-farmer educational resource network for new and young regenerative farmers, announced the release of the first edition of the Alberta Land Access Guide this week.

The YA network includes a large range of farmers and food growers who share the goal of growing food sustainably and revitalizing local food systems for the future. The Alberta Land Access Guide is a one-of-a-kind resource, recognizing the challenging and intimidating process of finding land as a new farmer. It takes land seekers through the step-by-step process of accessing and evaluating land. It also provides insight to landowners looking for someone to come and farm their land.

Inside the Alberta Land Access Guide, you will find topics including:

  • Case stories of new farmers and how they got onto land
  • Overview of the nuts and bolts of leasing land: benefits, options, and agreements
  • Purchasing land: strategies for building equity
  • Attributes to consider when assessing potential land opportunities
  • Navigating farm business start-up
  • Community farms and land sharing

“The Alberta Land Access Guide is full of case stories of people doing creative things to gain access to farmland. This is going to be a cornerstone resource for new farmers in Alberta and will show that the farming journey and finding land is possible!” – Dana Penrice, YA Prairies Program Manager.

Best of all, the guide is available for free to the public and can be downloaded from the Young Agrarians website.

Join the Young Agrarians network by visiting www.youngagrarians.org or find YA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
