Southeast New England Field Agent
Are you passionate about maintaining and expanding working farmlands in New England? Do you feel strongly about supporting local food systems and working in collaboration?
Join our team as our new Southeast New England Field Agent (serving Eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Eastern Connecticut). This is a unique opportunity to work on the critical issue of farmland access and transfer in your region — and across New England.
Land For Good (LFG), is a regional and national leader on issues of farmland access, land tenure, and farm transfer. Since 2004, Land For Good has been working to put more farmers more securely on land in New England, to support farm viability, increase farming opportunity, and keep farmland in farming.
LFG Field Agents educate, advise, and support farmers, landowners, farm service providers, and communities. They especially focus on providing technical assistance to farm seekers to acquire farms and improve land tenure security; to exiting farmers on farm succession and transfer planning; and to non-farming landowners (individuals and institutions) who want to make land available for farming.
Additionally, Field Agents work closely with partners in their area and the LFG team to expand the availability of farmland, enhance programming, build professional capacity, and advance policy change. Field Agents participate in organization-wide projects, such as developing educational materials, regional events, and team strategy. Field Agents are an integral part of LFG’s fully-remote team dispersed across New England.
