The Piedmont Region is renowned for its large farms; many of which have remained in the same family for hundreds of years. Passing traditions from generation to generation with the hopes of passing the larger asset of the actual land to future generations as well.
According to the VA Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, farming contributes $70 billion annually and provides jobs to over 334,000 people.

In recent decades, the cost to maintain a farm and the expense of the equipment required to run it have caused many farm owners to take on temporary debt; debt anticipated to be paid off in a predetermined number of years.
Long term planning for large farm owners has them asking the question of what would happen if they were to die? How would their debts be paid off? How can farmers ensure that their farms will remain in the family for generations to come? How can they secure this asset for generations to come?
