MDAR is hosting Land For Good’s Farm Succession School for Massachusetts farmers again 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. We plan to meet in-person in for a three-session program in Foxborough between 10:00am – 4:00pm on the following Thursdays 1/26; 3/2; and 3/30 (snow dates on each Friday of the same weeks). The fee, subsidized by MDAR, t is $100 per farm.
