Cohort of Experts to Help Transition Land to Next Generation

American Farmland Trust (AFT) announced its selection of a new national cohort of 48 leading experts in land transfer as partners in its project “Transitioning Land to a New Generation.” AFT says the project will build an adaptable, skills-based curriculum to help a new generation of farmers and ranchers navigate the legal, financial, and interpersonal issues involved in accessing and transferring land. The cohort will be trained to field test the curriculum in their communities and provide feedback from producers. The project will foster a service provider network and provide trainers with necessary skills to support farm and ranch transition, meeting growing demands for succession facilitation resources.
