The Agrarian Commons Online
Application Requirements

The Purpose of the Application

The Agrarian Commons Online Application is designed to gather all preliminary, pertinent information needed in order for Agrarian Trust to review your project. The information you provide will initiate a preliminary review of your project, and we will assess the feasibility and viability of proceeding to the next step of starting an Agrarian Commons.

What is in the Application?

The application is a ten-page application. The individual sections of the application include contact information and farm partners, base attributes, FEMA flood map, transactional attributes, natural attributes, USDA NRCS soils map, economic attributes, viability attributes, community attributes, and cultural attributes.

What you will be asked to provide

The application asks in-depth business, land, soil, and cultural questions. You will be asked to provide narratives, answer multiple choice and selection questions, as well as upload photos and maps. If the subject property involves wildlife action plans, farm management plans, conservation plans, conservation easements, or other official documents, you will be asked to provide those plans and documents.

Help sections are built in along the way, and you can save and return to the application later. If you have questions, please contact us using the information below.
