The free program will take place at Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County, 355 Court House – South Dennis Road, CMCH, NJ 08210.
The presenter will be Keith Dickinson, CFP®, CAC, Business Consultant, Certified Financial PlannerTM, Certified Agricultural Consultant with Farm Credit East.
The informational talk, geared to local farmers, will answer questions that include how you can transition your farm business to the next generation without unnecessary problems and worry, what will happen to your farm when you die, and how to avoid the fights and problems that commonly occur when family farms transition. Also, questions from participants will be answered. So, plan on attending and bring your questions with you.
Jen Sawyer Caraballo, ANR County Program Associate for Commercial Agriculture, Cooperative Extension of Cape May County said, “Passing on the family farm isn’t always an easy task, especially if the next generation is not in a position or has no desire to take over the family business. Farmers need to plan not only for the succession of their land/assets/business but also for their own retirement. We are so happy to have Keith Dickinson of Farm Credit East speak to our farmers about this very important process.”
