Access to land is a major barrier for prospective and existing farmers in Rhode Island and on Aquidneck Island. There are farmers waiting to get on to land, but the cost of land (even land with conservation restrictions) is often unaffordable to buy, and finding landowners willing to lease land for farming can be difficult. The purpose of FarmLink Aquidneck is to connect farmers looking for land with private landowners or other farmers who may have land to lease on Aquidneck Island. Besides making land connections, we can also connect you with resources and professionals.
