With 400 million acres of land in the United States expected to change hands over the next two decades, the time for transformation in land ownership is now.
The Agrarian Commons is a necessary and innovative land-ownership model that addresses the current realities of how land is owned, how tenure and equity are conveyed, and how land stewardship is carried out. This model challenges corporate and large-scale agriculture land-ownership models and offers a new, sustainable approach for the small farmer.

Agrarian Trust and our partners are creating the local Agrarian Commons through establishing 501(c)(2) and 501(c)(25) landholding entities to support land access and tenure for the next generation of farmers.
The founding Boards of Directors for the first ten Agrarian Commons are 58 percent women, 63 percent farmers, and 85 percent local to the regions each Agrarian Commons serves.
