A “farm transition” means that the responsibility for a piece of agricultural land is changing hands. Maybe the ownership of the land will change. Maybe that ownership will move from one generation to the next in the same family. Maybe ownership will move from one family to a different one. Maybe ownership of the land will stay the same, but different people will be in charge of operating the farm and making the day-to-day decisions. The transition might happen quickly, or it might happen gradually over a period of months or years. Whatever the case, this Farm Transitions Toolkit offers information, advice, and help to plan those changes.Transitioning is a complex project that takes effort and communication from family members and others, but planning for the farm transition just might be the most important thing you can do for your land.
