As an owner or member of a family farming business, you know that the roots run deep in your farming operations. In Canada, 98% of farms are family owned, while the average age of farmers is 55. Effective farm transition planning is imperative to the future of Canadian agriculture.

Both generations have something to gain as discussion focuses on how to prepare for a ‘transition’ off or onto the farm.
