Families who operate successful farm businesses often hope that their children or other family members will be interested in continuing the farm. However, the process by which the transition occurs isn’t easy, and can be awkward and difficult.

Communication throughout the transition process is critical, and can prevent worry and extra expense. Many families avoid the planning process simply because they don’t know where to start.

Three Springs Fruit Farm in Aspers, PA, has undergone several transitions. From partnerships/sole proprietorships in the 1800s, to father and son partnerships and to the current structure that includes several LLCs, the Wenks have remained solid in their commitment to producing the best possible produce for customers.
