If you’ve considered all the options and you don’t have an appropriate successor available, get in touch with friends or colleagues to see if anyone is looking to buy a farm like yours. You might also try FarmLink. FarmLink provides matchmaking services for buying and selling farms. Agricultural lenders like the Farm Loan Board, Farm Credit Canada or the banks might have a lead for you. The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture is another resource in addition to your accountant.

Depending on the type of farm, you might approach your relevant provincial commodity association.
