Farm Sales and Financing

Farm Sales

Farming has never been a livelihood for the faint of heart and today’s farmer is even more challenged than his predecessor. Whether its the economy in general, the vicissitudes of the agricultural economy, Mother Nature, or abrupt changes in family circumstances, the difficult decision has to be made. The farm will be sold. Our attorneys have worked with farmers and farm families in these transitions. Our services in this area include:

  • Negotiation and drafting of sales agreements
  • Structuring the financial aspects of the sale to manage tax consequences
  • Obtaining municipal approvals for subdivision
  • Estate planning and asset protection

Financing for Agriculture and Agri-Businesses

Our firm has assisted farmers and agri-businesses throughout Central Pennsylvania since its inception in 1974. We have also represented several of the major lenders in our region. This dual faceted experience allows us to guide our clients through the ever more complex process of approvals and closings. Among the agricultural loans we closed in 2013 was a package for the purchase of a poultry processing plant in Lancaster County and a package for an upgrade of production facilities in Central Pennsylvania.
