Small group meeting over coffee

This interactive farm transition program is focused on helping farm families dive deeper into conversations about

  • Family and business goals,
  • Job responsibilities,
  • Financial needs of farms and families,
  • Inheritance considerations, and
  • Mechanisms of transfer.

Do you have questions about how to begin working through these challenging topics? Or, have you already started your plan and want to learn more? An emphasis of the sessions is how to transfer both the “financial business” and how to transfer the “management and responsibility” of the farm business. We provide time for hands-on planning and discussion for the farm family.

The Mankato retreat will be on Friday, February 24 from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, February 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Find more information on the main course page


Both the retiring generation and incoming generation should attend the sessions together, including spouses, partners and/or other relevant parties.




A light dinner, breakfast and lunch will be served during the retreat. Due to the generosity of past sponsors of this farm transition program, meals will be provided at no cost.
