Many of us are faced with decisions about “What to do with the Family Farm.” Perhaps a death in the family or an inheritance has led to ponder this question. Most of us who grew up in North Carolina have witnessed many changes in our rural climate over the years including our population growth, a decline in certain crops harvested, increases in recreational farms, and the list goes on and on. One thing is for certain, the emotions and the decisions about what to do with the Family Farm can take their toll on families.
Our staff at Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina understood there was a need in our community to have resources that might help guide landowners with these decisions. Although we are not accountants or lawyers that give advice on these matters, we’ve developed this column and video series with professionals that are and can give advice. Legacy Farms and Ranches hopes that this will be of value to you and its free!
Of course if the decision to sell is your option, we certainly hope you will find our marketing and brokerage platform exciting and call us to evaluate your family property needs. Feel free to share our column with friends and family on Facebook and YouTube. Our farm heritage and ownership is part of who we are so we know what’s involved and the impact of these decisions. Thank you for visiting, Gardner Reynolds, Owner Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina
