Even though this article is titled "How to Start an Urban Farm", my intent isn't to offer anything remotely resembling a formula for success. Start off with an attitude of openness to the whole question of land.  You may have an idea in your head of how you'd like to own your place, how you'd like it to look, how you'd like it to run, but the city is a complex eco-system.  Your success as a farmer will in no small part result from how well you can interact with and adapt to forces and ideas outside of your own head and heart.
