Farm Succession School
Three Tuesdays – February 15, March 8, and March 29, 2022 – Greenfield, MA
MDAR is hosting Land For Good’s Farm Succession School for Massachusetts farmers this winter! This is an opportunity for senior generation farmers to talk with peers, learn from advisors, and get support on the challenging process of farm succession and transfer planning.
- Are you unsure who will take over your farm?
- Feel like your family needs to start talking, but you don’t know where to start?
- Have questions about retiring that you don’t know how to answer?
- Can the farm support two generations?
Succession planning is a process of exploring how to transfer the farm business and assets to a future owner. Succession School provides farmers and farming partners with the structured and sustained support to make decisions, engage their families, and organize the legal and financial mechanics.
Meet in-person following current COVID-19 protocols at the John W. Olver Franklin Transit Center in Greenfield for a three-session program between 9:00am – 4:00pm on the following Tuesdays: February 15, March 8, 2022, and March 29, with snow dates on each Friday of the same weeks. (*Originally scheduled to begin in January, this course has been postponed to start in Feb due to the recent increase in COVID cases.)
The cost is $100 per farm.
Funding provided by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources’ Agricultural Business Training Program.
