If farm succession is a long (or maybe even short) term goal for your business, planning is essential. While many farmers view planning as reducing options or boxing them in, a good plan is actually the opposite. A plan based on the farm members’ values, intentions and visions, mixed with a lot of honest conversation can provide a road map that allows for opportunities to continue or grow the business. Join Kaitlyn Davis, Agriculture Outreach Specialist and Joy Kirkpatrick, Farm Succession Outreach Specialist to learn how to start the conversation with your farm partners and/or family members and how to take the first steps in developing a succession plan.
