Heartland FarmLink exists to match sustainable farm seekers with land owners offering properties for sale, lease, or partnership.
Heartland FarmLink offers resources and tools to help make land transfer successful and grow the next generation of farmers. This site is free, simple and regularly updated. While profiles are primarily from Ohio, we welcome land owners and land seekers from nearby states.
Why make an account?
The search functions of this site do not require an account, but to contact a farmer or land owner, you will need a free account. This protects the contact information of all involved.
With a Heartland FarmLink account you can:
- Search for land and contact landowners
- Search farmer profiles and contact farm seekers
- Advertise land for lease, partnership or sale
- Post a profile
- Receive automatic email updates when new farmland opportunities are posted
Land Transfer Assistance
Our Begin Farming Program goes beyond fostering matches between land seekers and land owners through the Heartland FarmLink clearinghouse. Please visit the RESOURCES page to find information from related organizations about land assessment, conservation, legal and financial considerations.
For individualized assistance, do not hesitate to contact Rachel Tayse, Begin Farming Program Coordinator, through the CONTACT form.
The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) was formed in 1979 and is a membership-based, grassroots organization, dedicated to promoting and supporting sustainable, ecological, and healthful food systems.
Our education program includes support of beginning farmers, including those struggling to access farm land. We believe that as Ohio farmers age, people interested in sustainable and organic agriculture must be encouraged to become farm owners and existing organic farmers must have the incentives necessary to transfer their land.
This site is made possible through the USDA's Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program. We encourage those who care about the transfer of land between organic farmers to consider membership in OEFFA or a donation to our education program.
Thanks to the OSU Marketing Matters team, we were able to record these videos about why OEFFA created Heartland Farm Link and how to use it.
