In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks with Tom Field about “Planning For The Unthinkable”.
There are several types of planning in farm business management, and many of these planning processes are well known. They are production planning, financial planning, tax planning, estate planning, transition planning, etc. This week, Tracy speaks with Tom about a critical planning process that does not receive enough attention when it come to setting our farm business up for success.

Now more than ever, Tom is passionate about communicating this message to farmers. To start the episode, he shares a powerful quote with our audience “Planning is attending to the goals we ought to be thinking about and never do, the facts we do not like to face, and the questions we lack the courage to ask.”
