Farm Transition Webinar
December 2 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Wednesday is our first two event portion of our annual meeting celebration! Featuring the business meeting for Nova Scotia Young Farmers which will take place at 7pm. Members and those interested in joining Young Farmers are encouraged to attend! Following the NSYF meeting, they will be hosting a Farm Transition Webinar along with our AgSector program.
A big key to successful transfers is using strong, open communication. Farms that have successfully transitioned did so by implementing a written plan, making decisions based on values and vision, and considering the impacts from an ideal financial, tax and legal perspective. A transition plan will examine options and identify obstacles, dealing with the management succession and the transition of assets. To start conversations and help farmers learn from others’ experience, we will be hosting a virtual panel discussion. FCC Agriculture Transition Specialist Terry Jones will be moderating the panel of three farms who will share their stories with you, followed by a question and answer session. Those farms are:
- La Fleur du Pommier, from Cocagne, NB
- Boydsdale Dairy Farms Inc., from Norton, NB
- Van Dyk Blueberries, from Caledonia, NS
