Event description:

Thinking about leasing your farmland?
Before you do, learn how to develop a good lease
You can help a beginning or experienced farmer overcome one of their biggest obstacles—access to land—by leasing your productive land. By supporting new and expanding agricultural businesses you help boost the local economy, as well as help increase your community’s access to local food and agricultural products. A lease agreement can also provide a source of income and help with the carrying cost of your land.

Join ASA staff, attorney Bill Doyle, Laura McDermott from Cornell Cooperative Extension and local farmers to learn about:

  • Tax and legal considerations
  • Elements of a good lease agreement
  • Successful landowner-tenant relations
  • Resources to help evaluate appropriate uses of your land based on soil quality, topography and location
  • What farmers are looking for in good rental land
  • What you need to do to apply for agricultural tax assessment

The Agricultural Stewardship Association was founded in 1990 by farmers to protect agricultural land and ensure a future for farming in our region. To date, ASA has helped protect 17,160 acres on 110 properties in Washington and Rensselaer counties. For more information about ASA’s work, visit

This program is supported through a grant administered by the American Farmland Trust and the Hudson Valley Farmlink Network with primary support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Additional support provided by Robert H. Wentorf Foundation.
