Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
.Can my farm become landlocked?
No, if there is no other route to the nearest public road, then the owner of the underlying land would have to give you a "easement by necessity" if it hadn't been used for over 15 years and a "prescriptive easement" if it has been in use over 15 years.
So here, if the route has been in use for 40 years, then you would have a prescriptive easement through the continuous use that can't be terminated.
