COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR FARMERS AND CONSUMERS

Succession Planning & Land Transfer Summit

On Thursday, November 17th, SEMAP was joined by Land for Good, MDAR, Wildlands Trust, Martha’s Vineyard Mediation Program, Legal Food Hub, and local lawyers to discuss succession planning, land sale & leasing, and determining which transfer option suits your needs.

With farmland seekers, we discussed best practices and approaches for finding, owning and maintaining land for first-time owners, conducting needs assessments, APR & conservation land allowable activities, entity formation, purchase or lease negotiations, and more. With farmland owners, we walked through succession planning, finding suitable matches, navigating complex family land transfer, keeping land protected and more.
