Farm Succession

Succession Planning was identified as a major stressor for farmers in the Ocean State during our 2022 Needs Assessment [landandseatogether.org]. In order to equip the farm community with more support around this challenging issue, Land & Sea Together sent our staff to be trained in farm transition coordination, and applied for and received a LASA grant in 2023 to provide free coaching and $2000 of financial support for 4 Rhode Island farms ready to take on planning for their farm’s future.

  • We are looking for 4 farms that display a readiness to commit to creating a plan for the future of their business and land.  

  • Farm owners and other parties involved in transition must be available to meet with our staff Farm Transition Coordinator on a regular basis either remotely or in-person between January and May 2024.

  • 40 hours of individual farm transition coaching and coordination from a RI-Based certified Farm Transition Coordinator

  • Assistance putting together a written farm transition plan

  • $2000 of funding towards hired service professionals such as attorneys, financial planners, etc

  • Resources and handouts for your planning process
