One of your biggest challenges is planning for farm succession. At this year’s Farm Succession School you’ll get structured and sustained support to make decisions, engage your family, and organize the legal and financial mechanics. 

Topics include:

  • Goal setting
  • Estate planning
  • Retirement planning and budgeting
  • Family communications
  • Legal structures and considerations
  • Bringing on a successor
  • Management transfer and mentoring 
Instructors include:

Jon Jaffe, Farm Business Consultant, Farm Credit East

Kathy Ruhf, Senior Advisor, Land For Good

The event is sponsored by the Land Access Project, funded by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture through its Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program and a 2018 Rhode Island Local Agriculture and Seafood Act (LASA) Grants Program Award
to SCLT.

The fee is $300 per farmer or farm couple, including lunch, refreshments and materials. You’ll get $200 back toward additional succession-related advising. You will also receive no-cost technical assistance between sessions and continuing planning support from Land For Good.

Deadline to register is November 16. Space is limited.
