family farm, tranfer, economic enterprise
Family transfer decisions and procedures are often difficult and stressful. What is “fair and equitable” from one person’s perspective can be “unfair and inequitable” from someone else’s perspective. The farm is perhaps the most difficult of all family resources to pass down. After all, it represents both an economic enterprise and a way of living. The challenges can only be addressed if various aspects of the transfer process are carefully considered.
