Policy Options for Strengthening Farmland Mitigation in Massachusetts and Other New England States

This paper is one in a series produced through the New England Land Access Policy Project, a collaboration between American Farmland Trust (AFT), Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) and Land For Good (LFG). The New England Land Access Policy Project facilitated dialogue in each New England state to identify policy barriers and opportunities around land access and farm transfer.

This paper explores current farmland mitigation policies in Massachusetts and potential means of strengthening them. It also looks briefly at the other New England states and opportunities in each state to advance farmland mitigation policies.
