Farm Bureau Works On Oregon Farm Succession

Anna Reed/Statesman Journal

Everyone needs to eat, and some of us like it a lot.  But that doesn't mean we want to be in the business of making food. 

And that is an issue among American farmers these days: who will run the farm when the current generation is no longer able?  Farm families are not always able to convince their children to take over farm operations, leaving the parents with a number of less-than-good options. 

Oregon Farm Bureau Federation offers free workshops on farm and ranch succession.  We bring in a panel that includes a lawyer and an accountant to talk through the possibilities.
