The Landowner’s Guide to Sustainable Farm Leasing

This guide briefly presents the economic, social, and ecologic benefits of sustainable agriculture, though it is not the intent of the guide to persuade landowners of a particular set of values or to promote a specific manner of farming. As will be discussed in Chapter One, there are a variety of ways to farm sustainably, and a truly sustainable lease must fulfill the concerns and needs of landowner and tenant.
