Part of the value is because projects on a farm may span seasons, years, decades or lifetimes. If you have confidence that the heirs will continue the process you darn well better leave detailed info on what you did. Not so much what worked, that is obvious (the lush pasture, the healthy sheep) but what didn't work (the failed turnips field, the phantom cattle no longer on the farm) and most important the Why. US agriculture is in its infancy with respect to what works over time and the most important task I can do over the course of my lifetime is a clear concise list of what I tried, why it failed and what I'd do differently. That is more important than what worked.
