This is so interesting... I just got involved with the MA Dept.of Ag -- they have two grant programs for farms. Both require the farms to sign a covenant to *not* develop the land. In exchange, they get grants (up to 50K), technical assistance and financial planning assistance to help the farms succeed. It may be too late for Busa farm (which would be a huge shame!!) but not for other struggling farms.

Also, The Carrot Project offering alternative financing opportunities for small farms.

GAH. I can't make either meeting. But thanks for the heads up.
