Ron Hanson has counseled and worked with farm families for more than 40 years to help them resolve family conflicts in a more positive manner and to improve family relationships through better communications. His most recent efforts have been directed at farm business ownership succession planning and the transition of management control between farming generations. Through his publications and professional travels, Ron is recognized as a keynote program speaker on the topic of farm ownership family succession to continue farming legacies for the next generation of family farmers.
If something unexpected happened to the farm or within the family itself, does everyone in the entire family already know and understand what would happen next? A lesson to remember: what if usually happens when you very least expect it. That fact alone underscores the importance of business succession planning for the next farming generation so that a farming legacy continues.
Farm family members must adopt a vision for keeping their farming operation in the family for the next generations. Do all members of the entire family agree and support this vision? Without identified goals with established deadlines, the transition planning process for passing on the farm usually fails and nothing ever gets accomplished for the next farming generation.
Mapping out a succession plan to keep a farm in the family and family members on their farm is important. The critical question is where do we start? How can all of this be accomplished? Following a six step planning process can lead to a successful transition of farm ownership as well as management control for future generations.
