Farm Succession Resources
The emotional loss of a loved one is an extremely difficult time for families; especially for farm families. We can make it easier by having all our important information summarized in one document. This planning document allows you to summarize your assets and how each is owned, valued, and titled. This information along with liabilities will be needed by your attorney or estate planning professional as you plan your estate.
This factsheet serves as an introduction to farm succession planning.
This factsheet describes the whole farm planning method which farm families can use as they develop strategies for the future success of their business. This approach allows families to examine the internal structure of their business and then develop business, retirement, transition, estate and investment plans.
