Programs in US match fledgling farmers, landowners - Article Photos 1/5

In this Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012 photo, Schuyler Gail poses with her daughter Tillie at the family's Climbing Tree Farm in New Lebanon, N.Y. When Schuyler and husband Colby Gail were trying to get started in farming, they ran into an obstacle common to many fledgling farmers: Land was costly and hard to find. They turned to a local land conservancy, which matched them up with a landowner willing to sell for an affordable price. (AP Photo/Mike Groll)
