Our Farm Our Plan

Transition has a different meaning to everyone. This will depend on your situation, what your personal and business goals are and what success looks like to you.

The key and first step in transition - regardless of your situation - is having a clear view of long term business and personal goals. This helps to make better decisions, especially the big decisions. Our Farm Our Plan program is designed to equip farmers to clarify their long term goals, identify the actions needed and to manage uncertainty and risk.

Transition and succession planning is also about having the right team and expertise around you, knowing how to communicate with your family and in your farm business, and being aware of the options that relate to your situation.
