Farm to Farmer would not be possible without the support of our many funders and strategic partners.

 

Location-Based Partners

 

Farm to Farmer launched in Pierce and King Counties based on PCC Farmland Trust’s deep relationships and history conserving farmland in those communities. Today, through strategic, location-based partnerships, PCC Farmland Trust is excited to be able to bring Farm to Farmer to new communities across the region.

Viva Farms is a farm business incubator headquartered in Skagit Valley that provides bi-lingual training and resources to new and beginning farmers. Viva Farms leverages the Farm to Farmer land-matching website to staff the program locally, providing customized, in-person support and resources based on farmer and landowner needs in their area.

 

Working Farmland Partnership

 

Farm to Farmer currently serves Pierce, Skagit, and King Counties of Washington State. Our work in King County is guided by the shared goals of the Working Farmland Partnership, a group of stakeholders working to ensure a farming future in King County by keeping land in production and increasing land access for new and expanding producers. By leveraging land-matching tools like Farm to Farmer, and through personalized, location-based matching and coaching, the Working Farmland Partnership helps landowners put their farmable land into production and farmers find the right properties for their businesses. This collaboration — in its pilot year — is led by PCC Farmland TrustSnoValley TilthKing County, and King Conservation District.
