So You've Inherited a Farm, Now What

If you have inherited farmland or may do so in the future, this webinar is for you “So You’ve Inherited a Farm, Now What?”

Jim Jansen and Allan Vyhnalek cover considerations for land including management, transition and succession planning.  

The webinars answer questions such as, Should I keep the farm or sell it? How do I manage a farm? If leasing, what are key lease provisions? What legal considerations do I have with this decision? And how do we manage family communications and expectations when other family is involved?
