NEW: Buy-Protect-Sell initiative

The City of Ann Arbor’s Greenbelt Program invites farmers to submit a proposal to buy protected farmland that is being sold at a reduced price via the Buy-Protect-Sell initiative. The goal is to connect land-insecure farmers with affordable farmland buying opportunities. If you lease farmland and are looking to own, or are a small farmer, this program may be right for you.
