The Michigan Farm Succession Study: Findings and Implications


September 20, 2012 - Author: Steve Miller & Susan Cocciarelli

The Michigan Farm Succession Study: Findings and Implications was produced by Steven Miller, with the Center for Economic Analysis at Michigan State University and Susan Cocciarelli, of CRFS. The first of its kind in Michigan, this report details findings about Michigan farm operations and farmers’ retirement and succession plans. With over 750 Michigan farmers responding to the 2011 survey, the report provides information useful to those working to maintain farming livelihoods and Michigan’s prominent role in the country’s food production. It also confirms a sense of urgency to answering the question of who will farm in Michigan in the coming years.
