This guide is for beginning farmers wanting to pursue farming and find land. The guide shares the stories of a handful of young and new BC farmers and how they have accessed land. It has a checklist for assessing land for agricultural suitability, a breakdown of different types of land access arrangements, and a list of questions for when negotiating an arrangement with a land owner.
