Finding Balance at the Crossroads

Finding Balance at the Crossroads

How one farmer expanded his land base to secure retirement and his succession plans

Sitting in his office on his farm, Joe (not his real name) talks about the changes that have occurred since the days when his great-grandfather ran the farm: the advances in the farm equipment, the use of smart phones, working in an office, and of course, the size of today’s farms. Whereas his great grandfather worked 75 acres, 100 acres if you included the wood ground, Joe farms 3000 acres.
