Landowners and beginning farmers are facing a plethora of decisions when it comes to managing their land. Landowners face questions related to retirement and what’s best for their property and families while beginners contemplate their business decisions and how they can operate in an uncertain environment. By bringing these groups together, we can start conversations between the two and build key relationships.

This workshop will include professionally led discussions on how beginning farmers and landowners can connect and partner while offering an hour-long breakout session for each group to tackle specific challenges.

Beginning farmers will receive guidance and resources on access to land and financing, loan options, risk management, and feasibility studies.

Current landowners will be presented topics such as estate planning, tax guidance, and transfer management.

Specific resources will also be available to female farmers and landowners.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dave Goeller, retired deputy director North Central Risk management center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and resource provider at Nebraska Rural Response Hotline. Dave spent his career farming and specializes in business succession farm management.

This event is made possible by funding from a U.S. Department of Agriculture Beginning Farmer and Rancher grant.
