Planning for the Future of Your Farm Workshops
Each year, OSU Extension holds “Planning for the Future of Your Farm” workshops as a webinar and in different locations across Ohio. This workshop challenges farm families to actively plan for the future of the farm business. Learn how to have crucial conversations about the future of your farm and the strategies and tools than can help you transfer your farm’s ownership, management, and assets to the next generation. Teaching faculty for the workshop are David Marrison, OSU Extension Farm Management Field Specialist and Robert Moore, Attorney with the OSU Agricultural & Resource Law Program.
