MDAR is hosting Land For Good’s Farm Succession School for Massachusetts farmers again 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. In-person three-session program in Wrentham between 9:30am – 3:30pm on the following Thursdays 1/26; 3/2; and 3/30 (snow dates on each Friday of the same weeks). The fee, subsidized by MDAR, is $100 per farm.

If interested, please sign up for the course on Land For Good’s registration page. Registrations will be accepted until January 6th or until course is filled. For more information, see Land For Good’s events and trainings webpage.  Contact Shemariah at Land For Good or 603-357-1600 with any questions.
