Farm and Ranch Succession conference - Humboldt County

This is the first of a two-part workshop. The first session is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Jan. 15 at the River Lodge Conference Center in Fortuna. The second meeting will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Feb. 19.

”Sowing the Seeds of Farm Succession Conference” is an opportunity for farm and ranch owners, and their successors, to learn how to plan for business transition and build the next phase of a successful farm or ranch business. Succession planning facilitates a relatively smooth transfer of family assets to the next generation, and seeks to assure that working family lands will stay in agricultural production.

The conference will assist families with the challenges of planning for farm and ranch transition. The program is designed to engage participants interactively. Landowners without heirs are welcome to attend as well, to learn about possibilities of new business partners. Presenters will include attorneys, bankers and family communication specialists.

The two-day conference is hosted by UC Cooperative Extension and California FarmLink, and will be repeated in three locations along the California coast. The conferences will be in Humboldt County, Sonoma County and San Luis Obispo County. Registration for the two-part conference is $70 per person.
