Farm and Ranch Lease Agreements
Access to land – all agricultural production depends on it. Leasing ground is one of the most common methods of getting access to this all-important asset.
Why is a written lease important? Reliability and certainty. Both sides need to ensure that access will be reliable, and have certainty about responsibilities and when the access ends. A lease becomes your roadmap for managing this valuable resource.
There are a ton of forms and resources on the internet for agricultural leases, to the point of being overwhelming. Which lease is right for you depends on what will be grown on the land. Some operations need only a short, simple set of instructions (term, price, location), while others may need carefully tailored responsibilities and investment-sharing (such as higher value horticultural crops). We prepare the lease to match the operation.
