Q: LEASING LAND FOR FARMING

I have a farm with about 100 acres of crop land and approximately 400 acres of forest land. I am not a farmer. My interest is in having someone who is interested in developing and operating a farm like this. How do I find such a person and more information on how to do this.

A: The NC Farmlink program was designed to match farmlandowners with those seeking to buy or lease farmland. It is a program of NC Extension. The website is https://ncfarmlink.ces.ncsu.edu/

There are similar programs in many other states, too.
