There are different needs and options for purchasing farmland. Beginning farmers can face barriers of large down payments or may have a hard time finding a farm loan. Landowners may be seeking ways to transfer land gradually or still be able to live on the land while it remains a productive farm. Join us for a presentation by lawyer, Bradford Furlong of Furlong Butler Attorneys in Mt. Vernon, to learn more about what options are available beyond a traditional purchase arrangement such as owner financing, land contracts, life estate and more.
