Farm owners need a plan to hand down the farm. Purdue University’s 25th annual Farming Together Workshop shows farmers how to do just that.

It takes place Jan. 28-29 in Stewart Center on Purdue’s West Lafayette, IN, campus. “There’s plenty of evidence that in a lot of situations we don’t see farm management plans. Farmers just sort of let those things happen on their own,” remarks Alan Miller, Purdue University Extension farm business management specialist.

At the workshop, farm owners will learn about grooming future farm managers, keeping relationships positive during the transition and working through the financial and legal aspects of handling down the farm.

Registration and information is on the workshop web site at www.agecon.purdue.edu/extension/programs/farm_together.asp. Miller can be reached by phone (765) 494-4203 or by e-mail at millerwa@purdue.edu.
