Preserving Family Farms
Our firm has seen a rise in interest in a planning area that is dear to the hearts of many: Preserving Family Farms. From his early days growing up on a farm in Iowa, Curt (that’s him in the picture) developed a love for the farm life, and this particular planning area has been especially exciting for him to participate in.
Estate planning must be adapted to fit specific family situations, and we've found that keeping a farm in the family requires unique, targetted strategies. You can't follow the same simplistic approach as someone who has just "cash investments" to pass on.
There are great reasons for preserving and passing on the family farms in communities like ours, along with unusual challenges. Farm life is unique, and carries certain values that city folks just can't understand. But it's also tough to give the farm to a child who will keep operating it, while treating the other children fairly.
Our unique approach to farm transfer planning is designed precisely to make that happen.
Call us for more information, or if you would like to sponsor a "Preserving the Family Farm" presentation at a farm organization meeting.
