Lodders pledge support to Farm Succession Planning event


Lodders are delighted to support the first Farm Succession Planning conference, organised by Farmers Weekly, which will be held at Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth.

Lodders’ Agriculture and Private Client partner John Rouse will be speaking at the event, taking place on 7th December from 8am-4pm. The event aims to give the whole family a chance to learn how to approach this difficult subject and how to navigate this all-important process.

Farm Succession Planning has a comprehensive agenda, with top speakers specialising in farm succession and guiding families through the succession process. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to several talks throughout the day such as how to start the conversation to what questions you want to ask when creating a succession plan. There are breakout sessions available to suit the needs of all family members, whether you are the current generation looking to hand over your farm or the next generation preparing to take the helm. Without a farm succession plan, the future of your farm could be at risk, and this event aims to provide all delegates with a plan on how to put safeguards in place to ensure this does not happen.

Suzie Horne, Business Editor at Farmers Weekly explains: “While succession is a subject which many find difficult to broach, there’s no doubt that a planned approach can balance both family and business needs. Family history, ambition and expectation are likely to complicate the process but open and honest communication is essential for a successful result. The day will offer the chance to hear how some farming families have arrived at a successful outcome and to get personal advice from professionals at the event.”
