Farm Transfer & Succession

We Can Help!

Looking down the road at the future of the farm is never an easy process. And navigating all the legalities, paperwork, budgeting, and communication with different family members can be challenging. We are here to help you!

Heidi works together along with a farm succession specialist at UW-Madison to do farm transfer and succession planning consultations. We work directly with farm families to help them develop a plan for bringing the younger generation into the business and for the older generation to retire. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach, and we can work with you so the plan fits your own farm and your family’s needs.

Contact us for more information or to set-up a meeting!

Don’t forget!

If you want some inexpensive one-on-one help with transferring the farm, register for our ‘Navigating Your Farm’s Future’ workshops scheduled in early January! This is the perfect opportunity to meet with farm succession specialists – attorneys, CPAs, and Joy Kirkpatrick – who will be on hand to present and meet with participants for free!
