The Benefits and Pitfalls of Borrowed Land – Resource Sharing and Leasing Land for your Farm

September 9 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Molly Comstock, formerly of Colfax Farm, and now the new steward of Many Forks Farm, has leased land four different times and locations during her farming career. We will tour the farm and have a brief discussion of the growing practices here and how they are tied to secure land access. We will then take a deeper dive into the benefits and pitfalls of leasing and owning land, and the resources available.

Many Forks Farm is a small, diversified vegetable farm, using low/no-till and organic practices to grow for direct-to-consumer enterprises including a CSA, an annual plant sale, a Stock Up winter storage vegetable sale, and a farm stand.  Growing 75 different vegetables, herbs, flowers and berries for its local community, the farm engages in a continuous process of building soil and biodiversity with the purpose of improving the health of the land, the environment, and all who eat the farm’s produce.  Many Forks is in its 13th season in 2024.
