Legacy Tools to the Rescue: How One Farmer is Saving Money, Time

April 1, 2016 11:41 AM

Nate Robinson has been farming in Cass County Michigan for over 40 years and owns Jake’s Country Meats with his wife Lou Ann Robinson. He talks about how his farm has benefited from legal advice columns.

“I see farmers pay up to $50,000 to $60,000 for lawyers and Farm Journal lays it out for you,” he says.

While it isn’t a substitute for legal advice, Robinson says he has used the tools made available by the Legacy Project and his farm remains on step. He uses the information he finds in Farm Journal newsletters and in online articles that he prints out.

He hopes to inspire his son or daughter to take over the family business but insists it doesn’t have to remain how he left it. “I’m not locking the farm in and saying, ‘this farm must stay a hog farm.’ No! That’s not what farming is,” he says.
