PA Farm Link's Farm Succession and Transition Program

Professionals in the agricultural industry will be providing valuable information to farm business owners who are looking to retire, scale back from farming, or looking to transition from a farm business to take on another adventure. These workshops presented by PA Farm Link. PA Farm Link, a non-profit dedicated to “Linking Farmers to the Future”, will provide information on various aspects of creating a Farm Business Succession/Transition plan.  Often farm families start to discuss passing the farm business to the next generation, but get “stuck” on how to proceed.  These workshops will help work through some of the myths and stumbling blocks of moving forward with a farm succession and transition plan. Topics covered will include: Succession/Transition from a Legal Perspective; Goals & Needs of Farm Family Members; Financial Challenges of Succession Planning; and Challenges and Successes of Farm Succession.  Speakers will include: MidAtlantic Farm Credit Ag Professional; Darlene Livingston, PA Farm Link, and Attorney Jody Leighty, Stock and Leader.
Speakers will answer questions and breakout sessions will be held.  Certified International Farm Transition Network facilitators will be available to assist families in planning the next steps. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions, and will be given a list of potential resources in the area to provide future assistance with a farm succession/transition plan. Included in the workshop is a copy of: “Planning the Future of Your Farm” Pennsylvania Edition (normally sold for $10.60 per copy). Registration is required by January 17, 2017.  Registration can be completed online at www.pafarmlink.org othrough Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/farm-succession-transition-workshop-lehigh-county-tickets-29818727617  or by calling 717-705-2121.  Registration fee:  $10 per individual.  Multiple attendees from the same business are encouraged to participate so all pertinent parties, especially multiple generations, can gather information.
