Don’t lay awake at night wondering if a legal mistake is going to take your farm away. Developing a strong, legally-resilient farm business is easier than you think.

Farm Commons’ collaborative, accessible approach to learning farm law alongside farmer-peers will set you on the right path. This workshop isn’t a set of boring lectures filled with legal lingo—it’s led by a farm law expert and farmer co-presenters, guaranteeing you’ll pick up the practical wisdom and knowledge you need to navigate legal issues with confidence.

Framed around the 10 steps every farm needs to take to build legal resilience, you’ll leave this workshop with a personal action plan for your own farm. Checklists, model documents, and more show farmers how to get the job done. Together, we’ll build strong local farms and resilient community businesses with the law on our side.

This workshop addresses farmers’ greatest vulnerabilities in land matters and leasing, business structures, farm employment law, diversification and agritourism, as well as liability and food safety issues.

Included info packet contains template for creating customized legal risk management plan, three activities, farm employment law guide, insurance chart, and flowchart for classifying employees on the farm.

This workshop is created and delivered by Farm Commons.
