Vermont Family Farm Succession

Family Farm Succession in Vermont

Dr. Robert Parsons, agricultural economist, joined the Vermont agriculture and University of Vermont communities in 2000 and spent the next 18 years providing farm succession education and support to hundreds of farm families throughout New England. Following a long illness, Bob died on February 16, 2018. He is greatly missed by his family, friends and colleagues, but we hope Bob's legacy of helping farmers will, in some small way, continue through the information provided on this website. Here you will find articles, events, research results, and other relevant resources that may help you better understand and/or navigate the farm succession process.
