Farmer-Landowner Partnerships

Approximately 50% of the land being farmed in Chatham is owned by individuals who do not farm the land themselves. Both landowners and farmers contribute to the vitality of the town's rural economy and landscape. Farmers typically lease land from a number of landowners, and, when land changes hands, both parties need to understand the requirements and obligations involved in these arrangements.
These materials were developed by the Chatham Agricultural Partnership to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and landowners.
