Of equal importance, this workbook seeks to prepare all of the individuals to effectively search for and use the appropriate professional services required for the development of a high‐quality farm succession plan. Throughout, this workbook assumes that the farm transfer will take place between two families, related or unrelated, and that their business relationship will continue over an extended period. However, the information contained in the manual is certainly applicable to a wide range of situations.
