About the event:
In the next two decades 400 million acres of U.S. farmland will change hands. Will that land be consolidated into larger holdings and treated as a commodity or investment asset? Or will it prove the foundation for a new business, a next-generation farmer, a passionate entrepreneur? Join us for a daylong teach-in to tackle the historical context, long-range implications and economic impact, and stewardship potential of the transition ahead.
