Farm Transition

The long-term future of South Carolina farms and agribusinesses is dependent upon successful business transitions to the next generations. The goal is to keep the assets and resources of the business in agricultural on a sustainable basis. The Clemson Extension Agribusiness team conducts programs that help families of these businesses utilize various tools to address intergenerational business transfers and avoid potential pitfalls including excessive estate taxes and inadequate funds for purchasing sibling shares of the estate. It has been proven that families who have a plan which utilizes these tools have a higher success rate and better family harmony when transferring the business to the next generation.
