“Research tells us that less than one-third of family businesses survive the transfer from one generation to the next,” said Sarah Everhart, Senior Legal Specialist with the Agriculture Law Education Initiative. “These workshops will provide farmers with the knowledge they need to plan a successful transition of the family farm.”

This workshop is hosted by the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, the Agriculture Law Education Initiative, University of Maryland Extension, Maryland Department of Agriculture, USDA-Risk Management Agency, Nationwide Insurance, and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay.

The workshop is sponsored by Maryland Nursery, Landscape and Greenhouse Association. The workshop is a part of a series of workshops being hosted around Maryland sponsored by MidAtlantic Farm Credit, Maryland Farm Bureau, Delmarva Poultry Industries, Maryland Nursery, Landscape and Greenhouse Association, Maryland Forests Association, Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission and the Maryland/Delaware Sustainable Forestry Initiative Program.
