Our story was shared in Volume 31 of the Land Stewardship Letter this November! There is a wonderful collection of stories of beginning farmers seeking and gaining access to land. Some families are highlighted as they transition land from one generation to another. We have a unique story of gaining land tenure on our current farm. We’ve shared some of that story with you through this blog. A more in-depth look at how we were able to buy our farm is included in the letter. I’ll include photos of the article here, but please look up the whole letter for a better understanding of rural America’s struggles and triumphs to maintain family farmland.
