    Splitting up a farm corporation

    The time may come for operators of a farm corporation to split up as a corporate entity. Family members who have farmed together may desire independence, or they may want to segregate aspects of their operations into multiple separate corporations. Siblings who have farmed together for years may decide to go their separate ways as either part of succession planning for their children or simply a desire to farm on a stand-alone basis. A portion of the operations may also be spun out of the corporation in order to maintain the corporation’s status as a “family farm corporation.” While operations such as a grain elevator or a custom spraying machine may be related to farming, if these assets are not used principally in a farming business they could put the farm offside of the definition of a share of the capital stock of a family farm corporation.
