We are so proud to have land to start with farming and doing things with our own hands. The real job you can do is when you’re doing things with your own hands, and that is better than the paycheck you get from your employer.

The Need

It's simple: farmers need land. What is less than simple is acquiring it--ask any farmer.

All Farmers promotes access to land for refugee and immigrant farmers specifically because of the additional barriers they face. Limited family wealth, language barriers, and persistent racism (even in lending practices) all can inhibit farmers from reaching their goals.
