Off farm heirs and on farm heirs

Off-farm Heirs and On-farm Heirs

  • Off-farm heirs may only get bits and pieces of what is happening within the farm business and begin to draw their own realities.

  • They often have a very different perception of what it takes to run a farm based on their childhood memories of working along side Mom and Dad.

  • On-farm heirs may over value their time and inputs to the farm and expect more than what others think they should have.

  • Big issues: knowledge and perception of fair versus equal.
