Farm Succession Planning is a business and risk management practice that is critical to the agricultural industry and to the health of families and farm businesses.

A series of educational workshops will include family communication, business planning, retirement planning, transition planning, goal setting, legal issues, and case study examples. All of these sessions will present farmers with the knowledge to begin or to continue the process of succession planning.

Families are encouraged to attend the workshops together.
