Announcing The New Hampshire Agrarian Commons Fundraiser
Agrarian Trust and the New Hampshire Agrarian Commons are seeking funds to complete a regenerative farm transfer and investment in soil health improvements.
Active Fundraiser: West Virginia Agrarian Commons Farm Acquisition
Supporting food production, access, security, and equity to realize a new land-based economy in the post-coal region of Southern West Virginia.
Nationally-supported, community-held land and agrarian property that supports sustainable food production, ecological stewardship, community vitality, and equitable land access for the next generation of farmers and ranchers.
We are in the midst of 400 million acres of U.S. land changing hands as thousands of farmers and ranchers retire, yet next generation farmers struggle to access land. Innovative models of ownership and stewardship are needed to support the next generation, heal the land, and grow food sustainably.
We innovate in land ownership and access to transform our relationships to the land and each other, fostering regenerative agriculture and care for the Earth. We build the issue and reframe solutions, collaborating with communities of stakeholders to create the Agrarian Commons in support of the next generation of farmers and ranchers. We work for racial and gender equity as an integral part of our efforts toward environmental and climate justice.

In celebration of Juneteenth, we’re posting an excerpt from the FaithLands Toolkit. While the toolkit’s overview on strategies for reparations was conceived for an audience of faith communities, any community can make use of these strategies.
Businesses recognize our collective stake in the earth and are willing to direct energy and profit toward preserving the earth for future generations and restoring human connection to land.
Our work to build resilience through land transformation relies on strong relationships, and we are grateful to be in community with each of you. We hope that you’ll share this work with your networks and stay engaged to help us tell these powerful stories.
