The Western North Carolina (WNC) FarmLink program is a partnership facilitating successful relationships between farmers looking for land to farm, and land owners aspiring to keep their farm and forest land in agriculture. In partnership with NC FarmLink, WNC FarmLink maintains databases of both available farmland and farmers looking for land and works with landowners and farmers to ensure an appropriate and lasting match is made. We work with landowners and farmers to ensure an appropriate and lasting match is made. We will help guide you through considerations and assist you in locating the necessary resources you will need when negotiating a land tenure arrangement. We envision a resilient agricultural region where farmers have affordable options for accessing farm and forest land to create sustainable farm operations, where landowners have viable opportunities for keeping their land in farming, and where agriculture continues to be an integral part of our economy, environment, and community in Western North Carolina.
