This program addressed the human and financial risks that many Ohio farm families face due to a lack of planning for the successful transfer of the farm business. A two-day workshop retreat was developed to help farm families discuss and plan for the future. The workshop challenged participants to critically assess the future of their farm business giving special attention to management transfer, business structure, and retirement planning alternatives. It will also provided participants with the skills needed to develop a farm transfer plan and to increase family communication. This two-day workshop was held in four locations in Ohio with 127 individuals participating (105 farmers and 22 Extension Educators as train the trainer). The project team also conducted six mini sessions reaching and additional 150 individuals. The project team also revamped the OSU Extension publication "Transferring Your Farm Business to the Next Generation" and develop eleven factsheets on transition planning.
