How the Farmland Matching Service Works

If you are a Landowner who would like to make your land available for farming or a Land Seeker who is looking for suitable land then fill out an application for the Farmland Matching Service!

As a Landowner you can have your property posted on our Farmland Map and have New Entry act as a liaison between you and interested farmers at no cost. Additional assistance with land assessment and agreement structure can be provided when a potential match arises (See Contract Service List below).

As a Land Seeker you can obtain information about properties posted on our Farmland Map and have New Entry act as a liaison between you and interested landowners. Additional assistance with land assessment, landowner meetings, and agreement structure can be provided upon request (See Contract Service List below).

The Process

  1. Fill out a Landowner or Land Seeker application.

  2. New Entry will learn about you and your search criteria through the information you have provided. We will then apply your criteria to land/farmers already identified in our database, acting as the liaison between you and the landowner/farmer.

  3. If no land/farmers, currently in our database, match your criteria we will save your information and notify you as suitable matches arise. Land will be posted on our Farmland Map if the landowner wishes. We will also provide you with resources to continue your search elsewhere.

  4. If you determine that you require one-on-one technical assistance, New Entry’s Farmland Matching Coordinator can provide you with any of the services listed below for up to 2 hours free of charge. Beyond 2 hours, these services are provided at a cost to defray our staff time and travel, and upon request a fee structure sheet will be provided. We will work with you individually to determine the number of hours required or requested based on your needs, situation, and resources.
