We conserve farmland, forestland, and land important to communities. We match farmers with affordable farmland to encourage new businesses to grow. We also work with owners of conserved land to make sure that land remains healthy and productive.
There are many ways to protect land you care about. Some options are charitable and others result in payment to the landowner. Common approaches include donating a conservation easement, donating land, or selling a conservation easement. We conserve working farms, forestland, and places important to communities, such as town forests or swimming holes. Read more about all the options here.
Resources for Owners of Conserved Land
We value the relationships we have with the 1500+ people who own land conserved with Vermont Land Trust. Get answers to commonly asked questions or contact a regional stewardship manager or stewardship forester. Need information on land management, funding, or technical assistance? Check out our resources for farmers, or our resources for forest owners.
Our Farmland Access Program has helped many farmers buy their first farm and expand their business. We use permanent land conservation as a way to make land affordable. Are you an experienced farmer looking to buy a farm? Do you have a farm to sell but want help finding farmers to buy it? Learn more about this program.
We currently have land for sale. See properties here.
