GUELPH — Farm Life Financial Planning Group (Farm Life) is the newest Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) benefit partner and offers a new farm management service to members – succession and continuity planning.
Farm Life specializes in empowering farm families to have courageous conversations about the future of their family farm. Farm Life works with families across the province to build continuity of the farm through succession, transition and tax efficient estate plans. The company’s mission is to keep farmers farming and to work with families through the succession process in a way that protects family harmony.
“Farm Life is a great addition to our benefit partner lineup,” says Keith Currie, OFA president. “Many Ontario farms are multigenerational family businesses that are proud of their farming legacy. The services Farm Life offers can help farmers manage their businesses, keeping them sustainable and preserving proud traditions.”
Farm Life’s exclusive offer to OFA members includes a complimentary consultation on the farm for qualified members, 10 percent reduction in succession planning fees, access to an annual workshop on continuity, transition and farm finances, and a complimentary annual check-in for the first two years after a member completes a succession plan with Farm Life.
OFA’s Benefit Program is one advantage of membership, offering a wide range of services and
promotions exclusively for OFA members that deliver value to Ontario farm businesses. OFA partners with 13 different companies that offer exclusive savings and programs on farm management, transportation, financial, communication, travel, farm publications and farm supply, hardware and clothing.
