Farm Succession Planning: a Necessity for a Sustainable Food System
2024 NH Food System Gathering
Friday, May 17, 2024

The Barn on the Pemi, Plymouth, NH

  • A unique opportunity for food system professionals to learn and connect with other people, business, and organizations working to better New Hampshire’s local food system. You’ll learn and connect with movers and shakers from across the state on a variety of food system topics through six dynamic breakout sessions, networking activities, a locally-sourced lunch, and end-of-gathering celebration. Kali Lucey, Land For Good’s New Hampshire Field Agent, will join Cara Cargill from NH Agricultural Mediation Program to lead an interactive breakout session discussion about farm succession planning in New Hampshire — where this issue currently stands, what resources and tolls are needed to support growers, and how the New Hampshire network can collaborate to fill those gaps. Hosted by the NH Food Alliance.

Understanding Succession and Transfer Challenges for Farms in the Middle: Some Recommendations for Practice and Policy
2024 AFHVS-ASFS Conference Right to Food-Food as Commons
Thursday, June 6, 2024

Falk College at Syracuse University and SUNY ESF, Syracuse, NY

  • Food system professionals, researchers, academics, students, and practitioners, will hear preliminary results from a transdisciplinary quantitative and qualitative investigation of farm succession and transfer dynamics of “agriculture of the middle” (AOTM) farms. Like other farmers nationwide, AOTM farmers are now aging and therefore navigating pressing challenges of farm succession and transfer. Kathy Ruhf, Land For Good’s Senior Advisor, will present the fourth paper of this investigation and provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities associated with farm succession and transfers for AOTM farms and offers practice and policy recommendations. Hosted by Syracuse Universities Falk College, State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and Le Moyne.
