Farm Bureau to host farm transitions seminar

The Tompkins County Farm Bureau will host a Land As Your Legacy® farm-transition planning workshop Feb. 18, 10 a.m.-noon at the Dryden Fire Station, 24 North St., Dryden, NY. This free workshop will be presented by transition-planning specialists from Nationwide® Financial and is co-sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County.

This seminar is designed for farmers and farm families who may not know today who they want to take over their farm or ranch operation.  But, without the proper planning, outside influences such as New York laws and other factors may not allow them to have the control they would like.

Participants can start thinking through this planning process through this no-obligation, no cost, Land as Your Legacy® seminar.

“Looking at the future of our farm operations is something we all need to consider,” said Lin Davidson, president of the Tompkins County Farm Bureau. “We are very fortunate that New York Farm Bureau’s partnership with Nationwide Insurance allows us to bring this seminar to our member and fellow non-member farmers.”

Open to the public but registration is necessary. Register by Feb. 14 to Debbie Teeter, 607-272-2292, x151,
