Combined, this diverse team brings more than 180 years of succession planning

Since 2008, the Farm Journal Legacy Project has been creating awareness about the importance of succession planning for farmers and ranchers. We are excited to expand this effort with the help of our Legacy Project Advisory Team, a group of experts with decades of experience and a deep passion for helping farmers and ranchers navigate the process. These advisers will provide insight and tools at upcoming events, in magazine articles and on our radio and TV programs. They serve as the ultimate sounding board to help us provide you with valuable advice and actionable information.
