Farmland Lease and Purchase Opportunities

Opportunities arise on occasion for rental, lease or even purchase of farmland. We recognize the special challenges faced by prospective new farmers in a state where farmland is often difficult to come by, and we do what we can to assist in putting them in touch with these opportunities.

DEM owns, and leases for preservation of agricultural use, two properties in central Rhode Island: Snake Den Farm in Johnston, and Urban Edge Farm in Cranston. The properties are managed by the Northern Rhode Island Conservation District and the South Side Community Land Trust, respectively, and are subleased by those entities to beginning farmers, etc. This presents an excellent opportunity to break into farming and build a business. Please click on the links for more information.
