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

King County Farmland Leasing Program
To support the establishment and expansion of farm businesses operated by new and beginning and historically underserved farmers, the King County Farmland Leasing Program works to make farmland and infrastructure accessible to groups who face systemic barriers to accessing land.

Currently, King County has up to 5 acres of farmland available to lease near Kent starting in 2022. We are especially encouraging applicants who work to support business expansion for new & beginning and historically underserved farmers.

Please see the Request for Proposals, deadline October 17, 2021.

Working Farmland Partnership
The Working Farmland Partnership aims to ensure a farming future in King County by keeping land in production and increasing land access for new and expanding producers. We work with landowners to put their farmable land into production and with farmers to find the right properties for their businesses. This collaboration—in its pilot year– is led by PCC Farmland Trust, SnoValley Tilth, King County, and King Conservation District. Together, the Working Farmland Partnership works to expand the number of acres in agricultural production in King County.

Farm to Farmer Farm to Farmer enables new and expanding farmers to connect with the land opportunities they need to grow their businesses. At the same time, it helps retiring farmers transfer their land to the next generation.

Upon registering for Farm to Farmer, users will be able to create listings, connect with landowners and seekers, and receive personalized land matching assistance. Once a listing is submitted for review, users will be contacted by a member of our staff — an experienced farmer — to provide consultation and conduct a site visit if necessary. From there, listings will be refined and posted to the site.

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.
