This presentation will overview an innovative process for helping families deal with the difficult decisions related to farm transfer, from initiating the discussion process with the family, through resource assessment, through ultimate decision-making on transfer agreements. NCFTN partners with organizations like Cooperative Extension and non-profit and community-based organizations across the Southeast to develop custom education formats designed to help families reach consensus on important transfer issues. Copies of the 2d edition of the workbook Planning the Future of Your Farm: A Workbook Supporting Farm Transfer Decisions will be available for participants at the conference. This effort is supported by a broad collaborative infrastructure designed to engage landowners (often widows and female heirs) of farmland in an effort to find land access opportunity for beginning farmers. The primary presenter, Andrew Branan, helped lead a pre-conference at a previous conference in Oklahoma City on legal risk management.
