Leading Pennsylvania’s economy with $5.7 billion dollar in sales each year, Pennsylvania’s future depends on agriculture. 7.7 million acres are devoted to agriculture use and of those 4.2 million acres (54%) are owned by farmers age 55 and over, according to 2007 NASS agriculture statistics. If agriculture is to remain Pennsylvania’s largest industry it’s imperative for these acres to transition to the next generation of farmers.
Pennsylvania Farm Link, a 501c3 non-profit, is dedicated to the mission of creating farming opportunities for the next generation; with the goal of ensuring farmlands such as these stay in farming. This is accomplished through an online database.

It is a daunting task. However, Pennsylvania Farm Link’s goal is to serve Pennsylvania agriculture and ensure the 4.2 million acres of Pennsylvania lands remain in agriculture production for many years.
