Feb 6, 2018: Farm Succession School by Land for Good in Wethersfield, CT 

For farmers and farm couples looking toward retirement and farm transition.

One of your biggest challenges is planning for farm succession. Attend the 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, family communications, taxes, legal structure,
Medicaid, and bringing on a successor. Your commitment of three winter days will allow you to develop a concrete
plan for your farm business, your land, and your retirement. Farmers who have participated loved the amount of
attention they received, and valued the trust and sharing that developed among the participants, regardless of
scale or type of enterprise. It opened my mind to all that’s involved and not be afraid to seek help from professionals.
A must do! Definitely would recommend it. Well worth the time! Open to all New England farmers! Space is limited.
Register by November 20th by calling (603)357-1600 or go online to landforgood.org/events.

The fee is $300 per farmer or farm couple, including lunch and materials. Plus, participants will receive $200 credit toward hiring succession-related technical assistance. Attendees will also receive no-cost technical assistance between sessions and discounted continuing planning support from Land For Good.
