Frequently Asked Questions About the Harvest Membership
Who is the HARVEST Membership best suited for?
While we believe everyone is better off having a solid plan in place, most members range from 50 – 80 years old, have at least one child farming, and one or more off-farm heirs. They genuinely care about the future of their family and their farm, and are genuinely nice people to be around.
Who is Farm Financial Strategies, Inc.?
Farm Financial Strategies, Inc. is a Midwest company that was co-founded by Myron Friesen over 20 year ago. The company was started to solve a need that no one was filling, which was helping farm families step-by-step with their farm succession strategies. Mark McLaughlin and Myron Friesen, along with their other associates at Farm Financial Strategies are committed to seeing family farms thrive into the next generation.
How do you run the meetings if we can’t get to your office?
We love to meet face to face whenever we can, but we can easily conduct our meetings through video conferencing and/or phone calls when needed. We were already doing online meetings before COVID made it necessary.
How and when is the HARVEST subscription paid?
The HARVEST Membership is a one-time investment of $2/Acre, with a minimum of $500 and a Maximum of $2,000. The first half of the payment is due up front; after the preview call. We will email you a link for the payment form. The second half is due once your plan is defined, and you are to the point of scheduling your estate planning meeting with your attorney. There is an annual HARVEST Renewal subscription for $250/year after that.
What videos and online resources will we have access to with the HARVEST Membership?
You will gain access to all of the content inside the GROW Video Library. So as a HARVEST Member, you essentially have access to all the benefits or our SEED and GROW Memberships. We will be sure highlight the relevant videos to review as you step through each stage of the planning process. PLUS, you will get access to ongoing update videos and downloadable tools made exclusively for our HARVEST Members. We’ve designed these resources to help you step through the planning process as smoothly as possible and to help keep your plan on the right path going forward.
When does the HARVEST Renewal start?
The $250 HARVEST Renewal begins in year two. We want you to stay on top of your plan as your goals, family, or farm operation changes over time. The HARVEST Renewal allows you to maintain full access to the GROW Video Library and stay current with our HARVEST Member updates on the issues that may impact your estate and farm succession strategies.
What if I already have an attorney?
Great! We are glad to hear that! We are not looking to replace a trusted relationship. We are looking to help you to understand your options, organize and articulate your goals, and prepare your estate and farm succession strategies to help your attorney document the best plan for you and even build upon your relationship.
What happens after the call if we decide to go forward?
We will lay out the next steps in our call. We’ll also show you how to log in to our system to get immediate access to our videos and go over the information we need to get started with the one-on one planning.
