The Rural Woman Podcast Bonus Episode – How to Plan for Transitioning Your Farm Through Generations with Christina Fordyce

How to Plan for Transitioning Your Farm Through Generations with Christina Fordyce

In this extended Episode, Christina and I talk about transition planning. She explains how they sat down as a family to talk about what it would look like. She recommends finding a good attorney and accountant to help work through all the tough legal issues to ensure its a smooth transition. 

Christina co-owns Fordyce Farm inc. with her husband and father-in-law. The family farm has grown by leaps and bounds, now seeing the 4th generation of Fordyces running around in the strawberry fields. Christina and Graham have two toddler sons they are raising while running the family business. Fordyce Farm inc. has been in operation since 1959 and incorporated the business in 2021. The Fordyce family stays very busy all year in their very diversified operation. They offer u-pick and we-pick berries, a farm stand with local gifts and other produce, vegetable starts and nursery stock, baked goods with seasonal fruit, homemade ice cream and milkshakes, a pumpkin patch and corn maze in the fall, and now also Christmas trees. When she isn’t working on farm administration or helping out in the field Christina takes on a few clients as a birth doula, bakes at home with the kids, practices home herbalism, and goes on weekend hikes with her boys.
