How We Help
Are you thinking about a farm transfer or succession? This critical transition might be down the road or right around the corner for you and your family. It’s never too early or too late to plan for a successful farm transfer—one that honors your legacy and ensures that you meet your goals for the future of your farm.
Without thoughtful planning, your farm, your land, and your family’s future may be at risk. Too many farmers put off succession planning, and many don’t have an identified successor. Good support and the right team of advisors can help you make your plan.
We can help you:
- Clarify goals and next steps
- Develop a farm transfer plan
- Build your team of advisors
- Obtain information from experts and educational resources
- Identify or recruit a farm successor, if necessary
- Explore financial, legal and management considerations
- Work with you, your family, stakeholders and/or successor toward a smooth transition
Our team may recommend:
- Our winter webinar series, one of our local workshops or Farm Succession School
- Online tutorials, templates and worksheets
- Our extensive online library of educational and resource materials
- Referrals to technical specialists and partners
- Individualized advising and support throughout your process from an LFG Field Agent if your farm is in New England
Get in touch through our Farm Transfer Form. A member of our team will share recommended resources, next steps and/or referrals. They will connect you with an LFG Field Agent for a no-cost information session if appropriate.

Tim and Janet planned an intentional long-term farm transfer at Crossroad Farm (VT) with support from a Land For Good field agent. Read their farmer story.
“For me, the idea that one day you can walk out on the farm, and this is no longer yours is difficult emotionally. You’re still interested, you’re still committed, and you want to see it succeed and be part of it.”Tim Taylor, co-founder & former owner Crossroad Farm, Fairlee, VT
