The he National Young Farmers Coalition offers a new Finding Farmland Online Course. With farmland increasingly valued for non-agricultural uses and young farmers citing land access as their top challenge, we're focused on making secure, affordable access to land possible for the next generation of farmers and ranchers. The Finding Farmland Course is a series of nine free lessons that prepare farmers to confidently approach the financial decisions related to land access and acquiring their own farm. This project is a collaboration between Young Farmers and several partner organizations, and was supported by a grant from USDA NIFA's Beginning Farmers and Ranchers Development Program.

Earthen Heart LLC in Bangor Michigan USA is a Community Homestead guided by Permaculture Principles with a focus on sharing a holistic lifestyle with a small group of homesteaders that is low impact and high quality.  By producing more ourselves (energy, food, entertainment) and consuming less from off-site we can collectively shift away from the hyper-consumption model of an endless growth paradigm.  Furthermore, by sharing land, resources and infrastructure we can reduce our need for outside income and minimize waste.  See more at EH_2019.pdf.  If you are interested in a short visit or potentially becoming a co-owner of Earthen Heart LLC, please reach out by filling out the survey at the website.  http://......

20 acres with a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house near Bangor, MI. Bangor is situated between South Haven, a very popular resort and boating community, and Kalamazoo, a growing college town.  Fennville, a growing center for sustainable farming, is nearby. Detroit, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Holland, Saugatuck, and St. Joseph/Benton Harbor are all accessible markets.

The property has a mix of soil types, mostly sandy loam according to the US soil survey.  It was used as a homestead at one point, but fell into disuse before I bought it.  There are a couple of fenced paddocks on canarygrass and a neglected blueberry patch (1 acre?) and orchard.  About half of the property is open field that could be seeded or planted as desired.&...

20 acres for rent in beautiful Harbor Country, Michigan!

We have a 28 acre farm in SW Michigan and are renting 20 acres to an organic farmer.  We have had a certified organic rye crop the past 2 years and are seeking someone who will farm our land with organic and sustainable practices.  Since we bought the property in 2010 we have not had any RoundUp or harmful chemicals and the field has been fallow 2 of the past 5 years.  We fertilized with organic chicken manure 2 years ago and spread hi-cal lime last year.  Hoping for the right individual to offer us a fair price!  nancydepondt@gmail.com
