Farm transition webinar recordings available

by Megan Roberts, Extension educator

In December, University of Minnesota Extension hosted a webinar series on introductory farm transition and estate planning concepts. Recordings of those sessions are now available for viewing on YouTube.

Whether young or old, a long-time farm owner or an aspiring beginning farmer, the webinars were designed to give the basics around terminology related to farm ownership, farm transfer, and estate planning. 

Webinar #1: Developing your farm transition goals and assembling your “team"

Webinar #2: All things tax: gifting, selling, and transferring – What are the differences? What are the tax implications? What should I include in my farm transition plan?

Webinar #3: Wills, trusts, ownership titling—What does it all mean?

Webinar #4: Putting the basics together: estate, retirement, healthcare, and business transfer planning—How are they different and how are they similar?

Materials from the webinars, including the slides, are available for download at

Additionally, University of Minnesota Extension, in collaboration with Minnesota State Farm Business Management, will offer farm transition planning events for farmers later this winter, including two in-person farm transition retreats for farm families. The retreat locations for 2022 include Alexandria or Mankato
