AUSTIN -- What could be America’s largest transition of farm and ranch land ownership is under way, a trend that has many across the nation wondering about their next steps.

Karen Stettler, program organizer for the Land Stewardship Project, said there isn’t always a simple answer, with the transition of land to the next generation, which is happening more and more as farmers and ranchers grow older.

Stettler said it’s estimated that over the next 20 years, up to 70 percent of America’s farm and ranch land could change hands.

In addition to these ownership transitions, another change across the rural landscape is the increase in the number of women landowners. Stettler said they now own or operate half of the farmland in the Midwest.

“A lot of women end up being decision-makers on farms,” she said, “and whether they farm the land themselves or whether they rent their land to other people, they find themselves in the decision-making role.”

To help women and others in transitions, Stettler said they’ve launched a Farm Transitions Toolkit, with information on everything from finances to networking and conservation.

The toolkit can be found on the Land Stewardship Project website, landstewardshipproject.org.
