New England Farm Succession School - Bedford, New Hampshire 

Are you looking toward your farm transition?

One of your biggest challenges is planning for farm succession. Attend this year’s 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 and budgeting
  • Family communications
  • Legal structures and considerations
  • Bringing on a successor
  • Management transfer and mentoring 

Farmers who have participated in past Succession Schools 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 is a big relief to me!  Thanks for the push to get it done!  The course was well worthwhile,” shared one participant.

“A must do! Definitely would recommend it. Well worth the time!” shared another participant. 

The fee is $300 per farmer or farm couple, including lunch, refreshments and materials. You’ll get $200 back toward additional succession-related advising. You will also receive no-cost technical assistance between sessions and continuing planning support from Land For Good.
