What will become of your woods when you are no longer able to care for them?  Are you planning to transfer or sell them to a family member?  Have you developed a plan for how to do this to minimize the tax consequences?

The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources’ Agricultural Business Training Program will hold a Planning for the Next Successor on Your Farm workshop on Wednesday, February 6th(snow date 2/7, same place & time) –at the Red Barn at Hampshire College in Amherst from 5 to 7 p.m. to help farmers (and woodland owners) better understand what is involved in succession planning.

Experts from Land for Good and MDAR will provide tools and resources – including the state’s  Agricultural Preservation Restriction (APR) Program ​- to help you identify the next owner of the farm and take steps towards making the transition.


To register for this workshop, email Dorothy Du at– please include how many people will be attending from your farm.
