Farm Succession School

The biggest hurdle in farm succession planning is getting the plan done. For senior farmers and farm partners in Connecticut, like Chris, who are looking toward retirement and farm transition, the Farm Succession School is here to help!

This three-day winter course is for senior farmers who are ready to do the work and dig into creating a farm succession plan.

This curriculum is designed to help farmers think through the many aspects of succession planning, clarify vision and goals, get next steps on paper and review necessary documents to provide for a smooth transition. Sessions include ample time to share and learn from other farmers facing similar questions. There is also homework and assistance available between sessions. Farmers do not need to have an identified successor to participate in this course.

Farm Succession School meets at the Tolland County Agricultural Center, 24 Hyde Avenue, Route 30, Vernon, CT

Tuesdays from 9:30am – 3:30pm
Please note: START DATE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO FEBRUARY 7! Snow date February 10.
