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 Dorothy.Du@mass.gov– please include how many people will be attending from your farm.
