Finding Farmland

Finding Farmland

Finding affordable land for purchase or long-term lease can be a significant challenge. However, there are several options which may help you find the land you need to farm. Whether finding the attributes of land- water, drainage zoning, or resources that help connect farmers with available land, through listings or funding programs, many resources are available. In King County, there are five designated Agriculture Production Districts and more than 14,600 acres of preserved farmland by King County’s Farmland Preservation Program.


Finding Land

Farm to Farmer
Farm to Farmer is a land matching project that connects new and expanding farmers with the land opportunities they need to grow their businesses. It also helps retiring farmers transfer their land to the next generation. Farm to Farmer is a project of PCC Farmland Trust.

How it works:

Washington FarmLink is a program that connects farmers with land. FarmLink is a membership program that hosts information about available land and about farmers seeking land. They have numerous resources and expertise to assist farmers:
