Program description
California FarmLink was founded as a non-profit organization to build family farming and conserve farmland in California by linking aspiring and retiring farmers; and through promoting techniques and information that facilitate intergenerational farm transitions. California FarmLink offers linking services, training and technical assistance. The group has 2 innovative programs to assist beginning farmers with financing: an IDA matched savings account, and a new loan program, the Farm Opportunity Loan Program.
