FARM TRANSITION WORKSHOP TO BE HELD IN BOONSBORO
 
College Park, MD.  Boonsboro will be one of several workshop locations in a series of one-day workshops to be held throughout Maryland this fall and winter for family farmers and ranchers interested in learning about the components of a successful farm transition.

The Basics of Farm Transitions and Estate Planning will be held January 19th at the Washington County UME office in Boonsboro from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sessions will cover business and personal goal-setting, financial analysis, human resources, family communications, estate planning, estate taxes and retirement planning.

“Research tells us that fewer than one-third of family businesses survive the transfer from one generation to the next,” said Paul Goeringer, extension legal specialist in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. “These workshops will help farmers keep their families farming together.” This workshop is hosted by the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, the Agriculture Law Education Initiative, and University of Maryland Extension.
 
The cost to attend is $10 per person which includes lunch and all materials.  To register, contact the Washington County office at (301)-791-1304.
