Farm and Ranch Estate and Succession Planning

Cari grew up in a multi-generational farm family and she understands the importance of passing the farm or agriculture business from one generation to the next.  Cari takes a holistic approach with farm estate and succession planning.  There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to farm estate and succession planning and it needs to be carefully tailored to your individual situation.

Cari feels strongly that this subject encompasses three areas: (1) estate planning, (2) business planning, and (3) succession planning.  Each of the pieces requires a thoughtful analysis of the goals of the operation.

Cari works side by side any other farm or agriculture business professionals such as accountants, financial advisors, farm estate planning mediators, extension educators, or consultants to help develop a plan that will hopefully be revisited and perfected overtime.

Rincker Law, PLLC offers several packages available to farm families that include but are not limited to:

  • Last Wills and Testaments
  • Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney (both medical and property)
  • Burial information
  • Living Wills
  • Business formations (e.g., limited liability companies or corporations)
  • Transfer on Death documents
  • Pet trusts

More importantly, Cari and her team work with families with succession planning on the reality of passing managerial responsibilities from one generation to the next.
