Succession Planning

SPROUT SUCCESSION PLANNING

Sprout Agribusiness is able to help families work through the transition of their Business and overall assets. This is often a complex process and no one family is the same. Sprout Ag brings a bespoke approach to every family to help provide a road map to achieve the families goals. We believe that to successfully transition your business you need to follow a proven process that includes your whole family. A successful farm succession plan is one where everyone sees it not as an immediate step, but proactively improving your business over time and where the family works ON their business. A better way to think of a succession plan is a transition plan; as it sets up the handover from one generation to the next. It is our philosophy to help these family businesses hold onto the legacy that previous generations worked so tirelessly to create. We see this service as one of our most important given the impact it has on a family and their business plus the communities where they live.
