Fremont, Nebraska - The Center for Rural Affairs is hosting a free workshop for aspiring farmers, people who own or co-own more than 40 acres, may have inherited farmland, or are experiencing transition with farmland they own.

“Managing for the Future: Beginning Farms and Land Transitions” will be on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Presidential Dining Rooms in the Midland University Dining Hall, 900 N. Pebble St., Fremont, Nebraska 68025.

“The workshop is designed for landowners and beginning farmers who are experiencing a variety of decisions on topics that will impact the long-term futures of both their families and finances,” said Justin Carter, project associate at the Center for Rural Affairs. “These decisions are overwhelming and the answers are not always easy to find, so we’ve created this workshop to help connect resources.”

Presentations and landowner discussions will be facilitated by Dave Goeller, retired deputy director of North Central Extension Risk Management Education Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and resource provider at Nebraska Rural Response Hotline.

Beginning farmer discussions will be led by Kirstin Bailey, project associate at the Center for Rural Affairs.

Refreshments will be provided. To register, contact Carter at justinc@cfra.org or 402.687.2100 ext. 1018. Visit cfra.org/events for more information.

This event is made possible by funding from a U.S. Department of Agriculture Beginning Farmer and Rancher grant.
