So, you’ve inherited farmland and want to honor your family legacy by being a good steward. But, you’ve been away from the farm for years and, WOW farming has sure changed since then! You aren’t sure what your land is capable of producing, or even where to start. You know you want to keep the farm in the family, but the thought of making all the decisions is admittedly overwhelming.
Or maybe you’ve farmed for decades, but you’re ready to slow down so you can just enjoy life.
