Adirondack Project Will Connect Aspiring Farmers With Ag Landowners

SARANAC LAKE — Adirondack Sustainable Communities (ASC) was awarded a grant from the Farm Credit Ag Enhancement program for an Adirondack Park farm land mapping project to connect farmers with landowners who may want to lease or sell their land.  The goal of the program is to strengthen the agriculture industry in the Adirondacks by increasing the amount of farm land in production.  ASC will analyze existing Federal, State and County data to identify existing property use and current landowners of areas with suitable agricultural soils.  A user friendly computer mapping program will be developed to display this information with the goal to connect aspiring farmers with landowners interested in turning their properties into active farm land.
