A Farm Succession Plan Explained

A farm succession plan is the process of passing the ownership of your farm to another individual, usually to the next generation of the family. With our expert family farm succession and business planning, Boring + Taylor can make this transfer as smooth as possible. It also means you don’t have to worry about the future of your farm.

As part of your family farm succession planning, we’ll help you answer pivotal questions, such as:

  • Do I have one or multiple heirs?
  • If multiple, what is the split between those who are farmers/ranchers and non-farmers/ranchers?
  • If there are multiple heirs who want to farm the land, would they be able to work well together?
  • How might increasing the number of heirs affect my family farm succession plan?

We will also help you make decisions about farming assets like machinery, livestock, feed, and land usage. You can also set up how much land you wish to gift family members, even prior to your succession plans kicking in.

Why Boring + Taylor?

For over a century, the Boring family has been farming the same land located just outside of Indianapolis. Their agribusiness has been passed down through six generations, so we know what it takes to run, operate, and pass down a family farm. As the receivers of these 80 acres, Gary Boring (Founder) and his son, Mike Boring (Partner), understand the importance of estate planning and business succession—especially when it comes to family-owned businesses.
