Farmers are reminded that an updated version of “Planning the Future of Your Farm: A Workbook Supporting Farm Transfer Decisions, Virginia Edition,” is available as a resource for those farm families interested in maintaining their land in agricultural use as it is transferred to the next generation. The workbook provides guidance on developing a vision for the future, evaluating your farm and forest resources, farm and forest transfer tools, and meeting with professional advisors.
Free workbooks are available thanks to the Virginia Agricultural License plate fund and can be requested from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Office of Farmland Preservation at 804-786-1906 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Farm Bureau members can also contact me at 804-290-1019 or email@example.com for a copy.
