In this week’s episode, we are joined once again by Heather Watson from Farm Management Canada to chat about their “Farm Transition Appreciation Day” and initiative recently launched.

January 12, 2021, marked the inaugural Farm Transition Appreciation Day, which invites farmers to celebrate farm transition planning and take action. The goal of the day is to bring awareness to the importance of farm transition and to celebrate to progress made and the progress that is underway. Over the next ten years, 75 percent of farms will change hands, yet only 8 percent of farmers have a written transition plan.

"By pledging to take steps towards transition planning, farmers are not only building upon their legacy, but ensuring the continuity of Canada’s agricultural excellence through effective management planning,” said Heather Watson, executive director of Farm Management Canada.

Join Tracy and Heather as they chat about the day, the agenda, and speakers, and what we can hope to look forward to in years to come.
