Multi-Generation Farm Transition Planning Retreat
This interactive farm transition program is focused on helping farm families dive deeper into conversations about
family and business goals,
job responsibilities,
financial needs of farms and families,
inheritance considerations, and
mechanisms of transfer.

Do you have questions about how to begin working through these challenging topics? Or, have you already started your plan and want to learn more? An emphasis of the sessions is how to transfer both the “financial business” and how to transfer the “management and responsibility” of the farm business. We provide time for hands-on planning and discussion for the farm family. Therefore, both the retiring generation and incoming generation should attend the sessions together, including spouses, partners and/or other relevant parties.

Instructors for the course are Jim Molenaar (Farm Business Management Instructor at St. Cloud Technical and Community College) and Nathan Hulinsky (Extension educator). University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Agricultural Centers of Excellence partner to offer hands-on farm transition education focused on multi-generation farm businesses and are proud to collaborate to offer these retreats.

For registration questions, please contact Megan Roberts, Minnesota State, at 320-290-3872 or via email at or Nathan Hulinsky, University of Minnesota Extension, at or 320-203-6104.

We offer three options from which to select. Pick the location, Mankato, St. Cloud, or Mahnomen, that is most convenient for your family.
