Learn Farm Succession Planning in Purdue Extension Workshop

Purdue Extension Corner

Farm families can learn how to ensure a successful ownership transition from one generation to the next in a workshop sponsored by the Purdue Extension Succession Planning Team.

The workshop, “Next Steps to Successfully Growing Future Farm Generations,” will be presented by attorneys and estate planning experts Michelle Adler of Bluffton, Tom Appel of Valparaiso, Dan Gordon of Bluffton and Jeff Washburn of Columbus.

Topics include:

· Long-term care

· Retirement planning

· Caring for the caregiver

· Is an LLC right for you?

“Transferring the family farm business can be overwhelming and daunting,” said Amanda Dickson, member of the Purdue Extension Succession Planning Team. “This workshop takes an in-depth look at very specific aspects of the transfer. We address issues for you as the owner, the next generation, and the business. This is why we encourage the whole family to attend.”
