Maine Farmland Trust Updated:08/2016

Established in 1999, Maine Farmland Trust is Maine’s only statewide land trust focused exclusively on farmland.

We work with landowners, land trusts, farm groups, towns and state agencies, to identify and preserve valuable agricultural land, so that it will forever remain available for agriculture. And, through our FarmLink program, we connect farmers looking for land with farmers who have farms for sale or lease.

Farmers will often point out, “the best way to protect farmland is to keep farming profitable.” But like any business, farming can be a risky enterprise. Moreover, “development” market value of land is often higher than its “agricultural” market value, even when a farm business is doing well.
