A bill to improve access to farmland for beginning farmers has been passed by both houses of the New York State Legislature. Now it is up the Governor to sign it into law. Bill A.7002/S.5377 would require state agencies to inventory farmland owned by state agencies, such as the Department of Corrections and the Office of Mental Health, that could be made available to farmers. This bill would enhance access to this land for farming and take other steps to encourage the state to help facilitate farm transfers and access to land for beginning farmers. Sign on the attached letter and urge Governor Cuomo to sign bill A. 7002/S. 5377 into law!
