Farmers start, grow and exit their enterprises through the integrity, sweat, and care for their family and the land. What happens when it is time to move on from the everyday work of the farm enterprise and it must produce a different kind of yield? In this half day Farm Succession Planning Workshop we will work through three models for transitioning your farm enterprise and how to get the best return on investment from the business. Join us on March 27, 2018 from 9am to 1pm at Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards in Hendersonville, NC. Hear from farmers who are in the process of planning to transfer their land and business, alongside other professionals who offer business and legal expertise to consider when determining which model may be a fit for your farm.
