This report seeks to build an understanding of the issues around ageing and later life transition in farming by drawing on the key issues emerging from the literature and fieldwork. The Older Farmers and Retirement research and the pilot peer learning and support program indicate that assistance for people in farming with the transition into retirement needs to extend beyond the traditional content and delivery methods used for retirement education. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to retirement education for the farming community. Current education and training options for retirement education can tend to overlook the different learning needs of individuals within farming and the importance of context in learning delivery. 2005, 130pp, Pub.
