Agricultural Land Tenure: A Curriculum for Beginning Farmers and Farmer Seekers

The purpose of this curriculum is to provide a structured approach for students and teachers in both academic and non-academic settings to study agricultural land tenure, and explore tenure alternatives and successful farm tenancy.

There are two modules. The first examines farm and ranch tenure, including less traditional approaches to address contemporary land acquisition challenges. Module Two focuses on tenancy and landlord-tenant relationships.

Each module has four topics. Each module suggests classroom and individual activities, discussion questions and guest speakers. Each module is linked to case studies, and lists print and online resources and references.
