Preventing Land Loss Through Conservation, Heirs' Property Education and Land Management

Glenn Carstens-Peters
The Keeping it in the Family program covers most of the counties in southeastern and the south-central Arkansas.

There are thousands of farms in Arkansas, some families do not have an estate plan for when the time comes to pass down ownership of the land. This can lead to heirs’ property ownership. Although the Keeping it in the Family program exists to introduce conservation practices to yield a better profit for farmers, it also provides education resources for heirs' property owners.
