An Introductory Workshop for Landowners

Connecticut Valley farmland and barnDo you own farm or forest land? Have you planned for its future? If you haven’t, or if you have questions—whether or when to protect it, how to treat it in your estate planning, whether or how to rent it, how to manage it for farming or forestry—this workshop can help you understand your options and make informed choices.
