Farms for Farmers Program

Farms for Farmers Match Program

In addition to protecting farmland, Winnakee Land Trust acknowledges the need to assist the preservation of agriculture as a business in Dutchess County. Our Farms to Farmers Match Program introduces interested landowners to potential farmers and vice versa.

Enrolling in the program is free of any obligation. The purpose of the program is to allow landowners to consider whether or not they want to have their land cultivated or grazed. The program serves a number of agricultural needs across the board, whether a landowner is interested in hosting a small vegetable farm or a farmer is seeking out someone to carry on their business.

If you are interested in the program, please email Gregg Swanzey at and we will set up an interview!
