Are you a farmer thinking about transferring your farmland or business? Are you a non-farming landowner looking for ways to support the next generation?

Whether you intend to transfer your farm within your family or to an unrelated farmer, succession planning is real work. This interactive three-part online workshop series will help you prepare to engage in a transfer process, identify business and legal tools, assess your financial situation, build your advisor team, and prepare to develop a plan for transferring your land and/or farm business to a new farm owner.

Led by OEFFA Farmland Specialist Kelly Cabral, and developed as a pilot with a national network of land transfer professionals and the American Farmland Trust, you will spend the first session learning how farm transfer works, assessing your current situation, and setting goals. You will leave with specific homework tasks, such as holding family meetings and talking to advisors, to help develop your plan.

During the second and third workshops, you will explore your options, hear from professionals, develop effective communication to build trust and engage in conversation for farm transfer, and clarify steps to succession with OEFFA staff support. You will finish the intensive workshop series with solid action steps in place.

Workshops will take place virtually on October 17, November 17, and December 8, 2022.
