Succession Facilitation 

Watch the Douglas family succession story


Helping you find a collective vision for the future of your farm


The idea of initiating succession discussions can be overwhelming. Family farm succession is multifaceted, and involves a complex mix of family and business relationships. At the heart of these obstacles lies the need for honest conversations around a common vision.



How we can help you get started


The best time to begin succession planning is right now; farming families that begin the planning journey early, benefit from tackling succession over time. Having honest conversations regarding business goals, family priorities and business profitability sooner rather than later helps to manage family expectations.

"We've achieved a lot in the last four years, to be able to be collectively working together and to be working with my sons as peers in business is an amazing place to be".

- Murray Douglas
