This tour will stop at Dry Creek Red Angus farm near Goodhue, MN. The farm is owned and operated by father and son team, John and Jared Luhman, who grow organic crops and raise 100% grass-fed beef cattle using regenerative farming techniques. This tour is unique in that it is a mini-course in Whole Farm planning. Tour leaders Laurie Wolinski, Director of Northeast Extension Risk Management Education Center, and Seth Wilner, Agricultural Business Management Field Specialist, University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, have designed an interactive and informative process.

After a wagon tour of the farm, participants will split into small groups and visit 6-7 topical stations where they will engage in peer-to-peer learning on subjects relative farm financial health and succession planning. At each station, a subject expert will lead a discussion that will enable participants to dig deeply into issues on topics related to succession planning, business structures, enterprise selection using farm financials, grazing, records and financial statements, and resources to assist farmers. The Luhman’s are generously sharing their farm, and the ins and outs of their farming operation, to provide tour participants with an in-depth learning experience.
