Why You Need a Succession Plan

It's time to get serious about the future of your farm.

If you don't have a farm transition plan in place, you're not alone. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, roughly half of farmers don't have a succession plan in place.

Farmers often avoid preparing for succession because the process is stressful. It requires asking difficult questions and engaging in uncomfortable conversations, but having a succession plan ensures your business will transition from one owner to the next seamlessly and your legacy will remain long after you’re gone.

We can't stress the importance of having a plan in place. Delayed succession planning can lead to complex and challenging problems that can have a severe impact on your family's future. To learn more about these problems, take a look at our Guide to Succession Planning.
