“We love all that Maine FarmLink does!
It’s great to have advocates keep farms in local hands and not become developments!” – Patrick
What People Say…
As the recent purchaser of a small farm in Hancock County that I discovered through FarmLink, I would like to share my enthusiasm for their incredibly well run and informative program. From the first time I discovered the website I was hooked on their detailed descriptions and information that is so readily accessible and takes most of the laborious and overblown information gathering steps out of the equation. Succinct, informed, well edited and at the same time fun!
Working with Sue was a delight, she helped me get to the next step in the process within hours of my first inquiry and stood by to assist whenever necessary. Within a week I was under contract to become the next steward of a very special property that I thought existed only in my dreams!
Thank you FarmLink!
In 2014, Maine FarmLink guided us through the process of farm transfer. After 25 years of farm ownership, we were ready to transfer ownership of our farm and farm assets to new farmers. Thanks to FarmLink, we were able to meet a variety of farm seekers, talk with them, and make a successful match. Now the farm is under the care of new farmer owners, a very happy outcome. We live next door, and we are CSA members of their farm. It’s a pleasure to live near the farm we love and watch it being farmed by the next generation.
I am so grateful to the staff at Maine FarmLink for helping us imagine possibilities, and for connecting us with farm seekers. Thank you Maine FarmLink!
Maine Farmlink is one of the most useful sites available to those looking for farms to purchase or lease. It is excellent that no membership is required, such that anyone can search the site with ease. This is very uncommon, as most states require registration. That is an unfortunate approach. Maine Farmlink is easily accessible, easy to navigate, and quite helpful, overall. Thank you very much!
“I am very excited to be a part of this program. It is an amazing resource and just what I have been looking for in my search for farmland! Thank you so very much!”
Farmlink reached the right set of potential buyers, generated a deep pool of very interested buyers, allowed for personal interaction with each party and resulted in a straightforward sale to a great new owner whom I am confident will use and care for the property appropriately. Although it required me to be much more engaged in the details of the sale process than if a realtor had been involved, using Farmlink to transfer this special farm property was well worth it. And Sue at Farmlink was excellent to work with. Highly recommended to other sellers of farm properties.” Jim Dow, estate personal representative
The support and assistance from Maine FarmLink is incredible, and it’s an important part of our communities as the world feels increasingly uncertain. Maine FarmLink helped me to achieve success in my endeavors and I would not have found my incredible farm tenants without this organization. I am amazed at the power of connecting people through Maine FarmLink and I’m happy to know it’s a resource for others. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the farm link opportunity! We talked with so many interesting people because of it and met one very energetic and forward thinking couple. I think your service is a great idea and works really well to connect people. Our buyers come from our little island community, but I am sure the added energy and interest of the farmers who called us helped to add vigor to us and to the farm and made it shine in their eyes.
