Abstract: Farm transition planning is one of the most underutilized farm financial planning tools and is also one of the most under-researched issues in agriculture (Fetsch 1999). We evaluate the results of a survey administered to 100 farmers attending the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Tennessee Farm Bureau. After briefly reviewing previous research in farm transition planning, we describe our survey approach, analyze our survey results and discuss the implications and conclusions of our study. The primary audience is Extension personnel, agricultural policy makers and leadership of appropriate nonprofit organizations such as the Tennessee Farm Bureau. Our hope is that possible providers of information regarding farm transition planning will be better informed and as a result, more farm transition planning will actually occur.
