Catskills FarmLink Launches Online Land Access Resource For Beginning Farmers

WALTON, NY, October 3, 2011 – A collaboration of Catskills region agricultural organizations today announced the launch of Catskills FarmLink, a
free online land listing resource at www.catskillsfarmlink.org.

Catskills FarmLink was developed in response to increasing inquiries related to land access in the Catskills. The site is designed to promote the Catskills
as a great place to operate a small, diversified farm and seeks to maintain the region’s working landscape by connecting farmers with underutilized agricultural land.

The site  will serve beginning farmers looking to transition to independent farm management, existing farmers looking to acquire or access more land, and
landowners interested in making property available for agricultural use.

Site users may submit listings on www.catskillsfarmlink.org at no charge. Classified categories include equipment, hay and feed, landseekers, livestock and agricultural services.

Visit www.catskillsfarmlink.org to explore the site and contribute to its content.
Catskills FarmLink is a collaborative effort of regional organizations committed to the future of agriculture in the
region. These organizations include ; Catskill Mountainkeeper, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware, Schoharie and Sullivan Counties; Delaware Highlands Conservancy; Farm Catskills; Farmhearts; NYC Department of Environmental Protection; and the Watershed Agricultural Council.
