Planning for Succession

Date: Tue. 20 Mar, 2018 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

IMG 2380Are you a farmer who is wondering how you will be able to retire and pass your knowledge on to the next generation? Many older farmers are struggling with these questions.

Are you a young farmer who is wondering how you can get started and build on what established farmers have accomplished?

Join California FarmLink and partners for a Thursday morning workshop featuring presentations and a panel of perspectives on succession that will include:

  • Tools, strategies, and resources
  • Retirement planning
  • Farm business transitions
  • Passing down land and other assets
  • Tax demystification
  • Transitioning to non-heir successors
  • Family communications and goal setting
  • Mentoring new farmers
  • Creative financing
  • Interactive discussions of key succession issues and challenges

Doors will open at 8:30am and the workshop will run from 9:00am - 11:30am. A light breakfast will be provided and we invite participants to stay and network with our partners and speakers over a light lunch (provided). Please notify us of any dietary restrictions.
