Do you own or care for farm or forest land?
Many small landowners want to preserve their family lands and businesses, but don't know how to involve a next generation in ownership and operation. Succession Planning--the human side of Estate Planning--focuses on ways to maintain family ties to the land from generation to generation, building awareness of key challenges of family businesses and motivating families to address those challenges.
Working through the "Ties to the Land" Workshop as a family or landowners, you will receive information about legal and economic aspects of transferring farm and forest lands from one generation to the next. "Ties to the Land" is an award-winning curriculum developed by leading estate planning experts at Oregon State University Extension and the Austin Family Business Program. This workshop is a facilitated mix of DVD presentations, practical exercises to help families develop techniques needed to address tough issues and resources from a local lawyer and business financial and tax planner. "Ties to the Land" information available at: http://tiestotheland.org/.
