AGING STATE PLANNING SERVICES
With the average age of the farmer predicted to be 65 and older based on anticipated US Department of Agriculture Census data, the need for aging services for farmers is immediate and neglected.  As most individuals over 65 years old seek health care coverage through Medicaid the need to protect one's property to qualify is often overlooked until long-term care is immediate.  For farmers who are often land rich and cash poor, the need to protect generational owned land and qualify for Medicaid should not be a choice.  Farmers should never be forced to sale their land to cover nursing care costs.  This booklet was written to provide general information about Medicaid and its impact on small farmers specifically regarding Medicaid lien enforcement.  Special thanks to our Founder for writing the book and Allstate for their financial support to publish the first edition of our book!

 

F.A.R.M.S. TO FOOD BANK PROGRAM
The premise of the program is to increase small farmer’s revenue and feed food insecure residents in their community. By purchasing produce from program farmers at competitive prices, the farmer generates enough money to cover minimum expenses like the payment of property tax to retain landownership. All purchased produce is donated to local foodbanks/pantries in the farmer’s communities.  If you are a grower interested in selling produce to us for donation purposes please access our sign up form.
