Sierra Harvest is partnering with the Bear Yuba Land Trust to support farmers and ranchers in achieving long-term land security in our region by protecting farmland forever. Inspired by the work of Maine Farmland Trust, our goal is to identify & protect farmland from development and subdivision, and give farmers and ranchers the land-access they need to invest in and build thriving agricultural businesses.
Landowners – share your land!
Find a farmer or rancher and to help turn your fallow land into productive farmland! Be a part of helping our community become more food secure. Agriculturally viable land is at least 5 acres of cleared ground, gets 6-8 hours of direct sun, and has irrigation water. Electricity, deer fencing and potable water are also important. Please contact us if you are interested in learning about making your land available.
