Join Cornell Cooperative Extension across New York State, the Central NY Dairy & Field Crops Team, and the Capital Area Ag & Horticulture Program, for our 6-part webinar series:

Design Your Succession Plan

Farmers and next generation farmers will receive an opportunity to develop and design a succession plan with sessions led by experts across the field. Attendees will learn through scenario-based learning how to relate real-life experiences to the farm transition process. This webinar series will utilize a "flipped classroom" which requires that attendees complete pre-work prior to each session. This could include watching videos, visiting websites, or completing a handout/worksheet. This pre-work should not take more than 15-20 mins each week, but will enrich your experience during each of the weekly webinars.

Cost for this Workshop Series as a Farm is $100.00 (this includes one workbook with worksheets focused on gathering helpful data, financial planning and timelines). Each additional workbook is $25 which can be given to others engaged in the farm transition process.
