Extension Offers Program to Help Families Begin to Transition the Farm

There is much more to consider when transitioning a farm than just dividing the property.

Many people work their entire lives to purchase a farm and develop a farming operation, but it dissolves upon their passing because of a lack of planning and communication.  The agents of the UK Cooperative Extension Service have developed a program to help families plan for transitioning both management and ownership of their farming operation.  The program is divided into 3 one hour sessions delivered via Zoom. 

Feb. 16  6:00 p.m.             Answering the Essential Questions           Dr. Steve Issacs, UK

Feb. 23 6:00 p.m.             Gathering the Essential Documents         County Agents Lead the Discussion

March 2nd 6:00 p.m.        Creating the Essential Relationships         Lora Lee Robey, Attorney

Whether you farm is large or small you are invited to participate in the farm transition program.  The sessions will be 1 hour each.  There is no fee to participate.  Registration is required, as the programs will be delivered via zoom technology.  Families are invited to participate together as most of the time these are family decisions.  To register contact the Butler County Extension Office at 526-3767 or e-mail me directly at gdrake@uky.edu and I will provide you with registration information for the Farm Transitions Program.  The registration deadline is February 9 so that I can get you program materials before our first program. 

 For more information, contact the Butler County Extension Office at 102 Parkway Lane, Morgantown or call 270-526-3767.
