The Leelanau Conservancy just launched a long-awaited website designed to connect farmers with available farmland.  The program called Farmer to Farmer (f2fmi.com) also allows landowners to promote their property to prospective growers. Similar to FarmLink programs in other states, Farmer to Farmer is a new take on farmland access and support.

Farmer to Farmer also provides an agricultural job-seeker board to connect growing farms with a qualified labor pool.  The project is a partnership of the Leelanau Conservancy, the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, MSU Extension, and Taste the Local Difference. For the moment, Farmer to Farmer is focused only on Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Kalkaska and Manistee ...

Our farm consists of 120 acres south of Lansing.  About 80 are tillable.  Fenced and cross-fenced.  Good water.  Currently we are mixed-power with Suffolk Punch horses and a tractor.  We are a grass based operation with cattle and sheep.  We produce our own hay for winter feeding and sale.  There is a 5-6 acre area inside a slope fence that would lend itself to vegtable/fruit production.  Farmhouse and barns, woodlots, and some pond/wet areas.  Our ground has not had any chemicals applied for over seven years.  We would like to transition stewardship to organic minded family or families.  Would like to sell 'as is' , complete with stock and equip. if possible.  We will have...

Crosaires is a small, assisted living home in Williamston, Michigan. We are searching for a small-scale farmer to set up their business on our land. Our 10 acre property is set in Ingham County, just a few minutes north of downtown Williamston. The land is free of rent – the only "rent" we’re asking for is sharing some of the harvest with our residents and being open to find meaningful ways to interact with our elders. Currently, we can make 1 acre available for cultivation, but are happy to discuss ideas for future growth & expansion.

Other benefits of this opportunity are:

  • Prime agricultural land
  • Beautiful loam soil
  • Irrigation hookup to house
  • Freedom to own and design your own business
  • Strong ...
