Land/Farm OWNERS: Farm Owner - Farm Seeker Mixer Survey and Registration 

KRC often receives phone calls from people who are looking for someone to take over their farm or ranch, or someone to lease the farm or ranch from them, or buy it. Sometimes we hear from those seeking a farm or land to buy or lease, or for an opportunity to work with a farmer as they gain some experience. 

The common theme is that they all share similar values. They want the farm to go to someone who will care about place, and care for the land as they have; or they are looking for a farming opportunity where they can put into practice sustainable, regenerative, or organic practices, or raise specialty crops with local and regional marketing options in mind. 

Research has shown that the biggest challenge for farm succession to a non-related successor is for these two groups to find each other.

This Mixer  is a pilot effort to bring land/farm owners and seekers in KS together, aiming to build understanding on how events like these might help land owners and seekers identify each other and better understand the challenges and opportunities they encounter.
