Retirement Plans for Farmers

This session of the Young Farmers Conference was live streamed on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 at Stone Barns Center.

Retirement Plans for Farmers

The one thing we can all agree on is that farming takes a lot of hard work. However, do we ever think about putting some of that hard work towards the future? How many of us have thought about investing for the future, let alone preparing for retirement? This workshop will bring you into the 21st century of investing in more than just the farm – how about investing in yourself? We will discuss retirement and investment strategies aimed at getting young farmers to think about investing as part of self-care. What are your options? What should you invest in? Will social security be there for you? Come learn, be inspired, and start saving.

Speakers: Karen Washington, Jocelyn Apicello, Dennis Derryck, Kevin Egolf, and Olivia D. Watkins
