Farm Succession School for Massachusetts Farmers

March 8, 2022

Land For Good

MDAR is hosting Land For Good’s Farm Succession School for Massachusetts farmers this winter! This is an opportunity for senior generation farmers to talk with peers, learn from advisors, and get support on the challenging process of farm succession and transfer planning.

  • Are you unsure who will take over your farm?
  • Feel like your family needs to start talking, but you don’t know where to start?
  • Have questions about retiring that you don’t know how to answer?
  • Can the farm support two generations? 

Succession planning is a process of exploring how to transfer the farm business and assets to a future owner. Succession School provides farmers and farming partners with the structured and sustained support to make decisions, engage their families, and organize the legal and financial mechanics.

Register by February 4th or until course is filled. For more information or to register, call (603) 357-1600, email shemariah@landforgood.org, or click the button below to register now.
