Since 2013, NEFA 1, LLC has established five Agricultural Centers throughout the Northeast. These Agricultural Centers preserve hundreds of acres of farmland to support the next generation of sustainable farmers.
NEFA 1’s model is adapted from the community land trust model and best practices of community economic development and applied to the farmland transfer and succession crisis. Ag Centers are made possible through partnerships with land conservation organizations, local allies, and the communities where the ag centers are located.
