Estate Planning & Land Transition

9AM - 12PM

VSU Randolph Farm Pavilion

4415 River Road

Petersburg, Virginia

This educational workshop is free and open to the public.

The USDA estimates that 70% of U.S. farmland will change hands in the next twenty years. If a farm or ranch family business has not adequately planned for changes in ownership, it is more likely to go out of business, be absorbed into ever-larger farming neighbors, or be converted to non-farm uses.

This workshop will provide information and guidance on the decisions you can make today to help you plan and achieve financial and personal goals for the future of your farm.

Presented by Ebonie Alexander, Executive Director, Black Family Land Trust, Inc. (BFLT).  The BFLT is a niche land trust and one of the nation’s only regional land trust dedicated to the preservation and protection of African-American and other historically underserved landowner’s land assets.
