The following pages introduce the two main options which are open to those who wish to set up as a farmer in France: the purchase or lease of a farm. However, these options should not be too quickly opposed, as they can be usefully combined: for example, the lease of land near a farm purchased will allow a project backer to reinforce it at a lower cost.
