Did you know that the average age of a farmer in Iowa is 57 years old? This is also the age when many people begin to make plans for their retirement in the next 10-15 years.  Farmers have a unique problem to deal with when they retire: What to do with their farmland? Consider gifting farmland to Sacred Heart, St. John the Baptist or St. Joseph providing lasting financial support and preserving your Catholic heritage.   Farmland donations can be in the form of a Charitable Gift Annuity which can decrease the amount of your capital gains as well as provide you with income for life.
