Whether you want to begin farming, you are looking to transition your farm to the next generation, or you are a producer somewhere in between, this conference is for you! Come learn about opportunities, pitfalls to avoid, and tools required for a successful farm transition.

On the first day, we will focus on transition planning on the farm. Economists and farm finance experts will discuss current trends impacting the available choices on the farm. In the afternoon, attendees can choose to attend breakout sessions that best fit their needs whether you are a beginning farmer or working with a beginning farmer, or you are considering which tax and management strategies work best for your growing operation.

The second day of the conference will cover many themes in estate planning. Attendees will be empowered to make strategic decisions after learning more about the available legal tools, potential tax implications, and the basics of farmland appraisals.
