farm-land

EVERETT, Wash. – Land access options for farmers in the urban areas of western Washington will be presented 5:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, at Washington State University Snohomish County Extension’s Cougar Auditorium, 600 128th St. SE, Everett (inside McCollum Park).

Cost is $15 per person or $25 per farm or family up to three. To register, visit http://AccessFarmland.eventbrite.com. For more information, visit http://snohomish.wsu.edu/event/access-farmland or contact Holly Small, hollynthompson@wsu.edu, or Kate Ryan, kate.ryan@wsu.edu or 425-357-6024.

Farmers who directly market their goods need to be near their customers. But land around urban areas is expensive.

Workshop topics will include lease agreements, succession planning, land trusts, unique farm shares and tips and lessons learned when buying, selling or leasing land. Speakers will include real estate and legal professionals, representatives of land trust models and farmers utilizing outside the box land sharing arrangements.

The WSU Extension workshop is sponsored by Keller Williams Realty, American Farmland Trust and Snohomish Conservation District.
