Farm Succession School – Massachusetts
February 7, 2018
All farmers care about the future of their farm. They agree that succession planning is important and that keeping the land in farming is a priority but many lack the structured and sustained support needed to pull an advisor team together, help the family make decisions, and organize the legal and financial mechanics.
Land For Good (LFG) piloted a new program that’s proved successful with farm families. Attending three-session courses, farmers receive help with goal setting, estate planning, retirement planning, family communications, taxes, legal structure, and bringing on a successor. The program is open to all New England farmers.
