In this succession of the succession planning toolkit, we have rounded up a number of end-to-end farm succession planning guides that take you through the entire farm succession process, from the first conversation to the agreement and signing off of the succession plan.
Succession planning is a process and takes time as it involves the transfers not only of control and ownership of the farm business and perhaps the estate/asset, but also the transfer of knowledge, skills and management.
Each family farm business is unique and there is no single approach to the process, however these succession planning guides will assist with family communication and a written plan around goals, visions, business, retirement and estate processes.
If the following questions are on your mind, then the guides in this section may help:
In this section we have resources from Australia and internationally, including a Farm Transitions Workbook, Toolbox for Farm Transfer Planning, an AgTransitions online module, a Farm Succession Guidebook, Legacy Workbook, A GRDC Guide to Succession, A Workbook Supporting Farm Transfer Decisions, and a Farm Ownership and Transition Workshop Resource Book.
As a producer and a person who’s committed to learning, growing and contributing within the Australian agricultural sector, there’s a heap of valuable resources available to me online but they’re all over the place.
In essence, Farm Table will package all of those ‘tools’ into one ‘toolbox’ for me, saving me a huge amount of time and frustration.
I’ll be able to tailor my Farm Table profile to my specific needs and interests, giving me access to really pertinent information.

It can be a bit overwhelming when looking for a particular information source on the internet, and I personally view The Farm Table as a great resource that does the hard work for me!
The ability to have a one stop central site that previews and accumulates similar groups of data and information is hugely beneficial and makes my life easier.

The Farm Table will save so much time; to have all the information in one reputable place and to know where to start looking rather than endless searching is an asset to the whole sector.
I am so excited for the new look Farm Table. I can already see huge advantages and know it will have a positive impact on our business.
