  • AgLink Experience.
    • AgLink is a user-led experience. As such, the Beginning Farmer Center does not assist in making introductions or matches between beginning farmers and listed farm opportunities. The Beginning Farmer Center is not responsible for any unsuccessful, terminated, or failed arrangements or agreements.
  • AgLink Purpose
    • AgLink is designed to facilitate the connection of beginning farmers with farm opportunities; it is not set up to serve as a real estate listing service. Thus, real estate agents and land brokers may not use AgLink to advertise their listings.
  • AgLink Applications
    • AgLink will not accept incomplete applications.
