  • 2.5 min watch

What are your plans for your farm after you’re gone? Whatever the plan, you need a will and an estate plan to achieve it. The sooner you start, the easier the process can be.


  • Succession and estate planning can be complicated, but the first step is an easy one: create a will.
  • Find a lawyer with ag experience and explain your expectations for your will and your estate plan.
  • Much of estate and succession planning means transferring assets while you’re alive.
  • Your will and estate plan should be put together by professionals, but talk to your family first.
