In 2013, the DLC partnered with the Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC), our sister organization to the north, on their already growing Farmer/Landowner Match Program. Joining forces with the CLC enabled the extension of the match program into Dutchess County, increasing awareness and options for farmers looking for land to farm and landowners interested in having their land farmed.

Both landowners and farmers create an online profile, which can then be searched by their corresponding “match” partner. The program provides a catalogue of available lands with criteria such as acreage, existing infrastructure, and appropriate farm activity. The site also hosts a corresponding list of farmers who identify their preferred location, farming type, and the circumstances they are seeking.
