Full Answer

The National Young Farmers Coalition maintains a database of farming organizations around the United States. Farmers may search these listings to find land suitable for farming based on certain parameters, such as land for sustainable or organic farming. Some organizations, like Mother Earth News, offer land listings in remote areas of the country. This organization, along with the group Land and Farm, displays farming properties in a database format. The Center for Rural Affairs Land Link Service, or CFRA, displays farm land sales posted by retiring farmers, giving young farmers a chance to continue using the farmland.

While some organizations require a fee to search for land, others, like MOSES Land Connect in the Midwest, permits registration without charge, as noted by the National Young Farmers Coalition. In addition to finding lands, some groups provide training in specialized area of farming and post job listings.
