Welcome to Colorado Land Link! Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. Below you will find an explanation about what Colorado Land Link is and how it works for Landseekers, including beginning and next generation farmers and ranchers.
Colorado Land Link: what is it and how does it work for Landseekers?
Colorado Land Link, a program of Guidestone, helps beginning and next generation farmers and ranchers find access to land and resources needed to launch successful agricultural businesses. Guidestone and partners work with agricultural landowners and transitioning producers to assess the viability for a match on their land and/or business succession. The Land Link program holds a private database of Landseekers and existing land opportunities and offers assistance with facilitating these matches by helping to assess the goals, competencies and readiness of both parties involved. In addition, Land Link provides and promotes education and training opportunities and serves as a clearinghouse for information and resources, including key components and templates for equitable lease agreements and financing options.
How do I get started?
Step 1 – Sign up for the Land Link Application:
The first step in the Land Link process is to sign up in the database for the Land Link application. There is no financial commitment to this part of the program; however, donations are appreciated to support infrastructure and operations. By signing up, you will also receive Guidestone’s monthly eNewsletter, which contains a Colorado Land Link news and opportunities, information about regional workshops, and most importantly, ensures that you are a part of the Colorado Land Link community! If you would like to sign up for the Land Link Application or would like more information, please email email@example.com.
Step 2 – Application and Matching Process
Once you sign up, you will be emailed a link to the Land seeker application. Once you have filled out the application, we will search our database of land opportunities and update you with the status of the search. Please be patient with this process as we receive far more requests than land opportunities. Regardless we will begin sharing resources and opportunities with you as they arise. If you have any further questions about this process, please contact Jennifer Visitacion at firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-239-0955.
