Description

Join Rogue Farm Corps for “Changing Hands: A Workshop on Farm Transfer and Access to Land." This workshop is a part of a series that will bring together retiring and aspiring farmers for a full day of training on land access and succession planning. We will also have facilitated networking throughout the day to introduce landseekers to landowners.

If you are a retiring farmer, come learn from experts about how to pass on your business to the next generation and assess its profitability.

If you are an aspiring farmer, come learn about creative ways to start your farm business with topics on finding and leasing agricultural land, business planning and accessing financing.

Our day-long workshop starts with breakfast at 8:00 am. The program begins at 8:30am and goes until 3:45pm, with light breakfast and lunch included. Attendees can get a reduced rate at Geiser Hotel if you need to stay overnight to attend.

Register now for just $20, including meals.
