With a discretionary trust, the decision as to what beneficiary should inherit what asset, and in which proportion, can be postponed to a future date. The trustee can be given the discretion to determine which beneficiary receives the farm property. For example, for young farm couples, the will can provide that the farmland and non-farm assets are held on trust for the benefit of all of the children, until the youngest child attains the age of 21 years. The trustee is then given the discretion to decide which child or children receives the farmland, and what assets are passed to the non-farming children. A flexible trust in a will can provide lots of powers to assist the trustee in making the decision at that time including a power to mortgage the land for the benefit of the non-farming children before transferring the land to the farming child.
