Ranch and Farm Transition Planning

  • Canyon City Community Hall 123 Washington Street Canyon City, OR, 97820 United States (map)


Agricultural lands make up 25% of Oregon’s land. Two-thirds of those lands (10.45 million acres) will change hands over the next 20 years. Oregon is anticipating one of the state’s largest generational shifts, and up to 80% of Oregon’s farmers may not have a succession plan in place. Your ranch is your legacy. How it passes down to the next generation can create harmony between your heirs and keep the business and land productive, or it can do the opposite. Carefully planning the future of your estate and ranch for generations to come is essential to passing on your family's legacy.
