Suzanna Denison is the director of the Western North Carolina (WNC) FarmLink program, which is a partnership facilitating successful relationships between farmers looking for land to farm, and land owners aspiring to keep their farm and forest land in agriculture. In partnership with NC FarmLink, WNC FarmLink maintains databases of both available farmland and farmers looking for land and works with landowners and farmers to ensure an appropriate and lasting match is made. In an effort to expand her work in farm transition planning, Suzanna became a certified farm succession coordinator through the International Farm Transition Network. Suzanna grew up on a large-scale conventional vegetable farm in Maine, which transitioned to organic in the mid-1990s. She is passionate about farmland access and preservation in order to ensure that agriculture continues to grow and thrive in our region.
