MARCH 9, 2018
Forming a business the right way, negotiating sales contracts, hiring workers, filing taxes, practicing food safety measures . . . the legal issues involved in farming sometimes feel overwhelming.
But there's good news: Developing a strong, legally resilient farm business is easier than you think. Farm Commons’ collaborative, easily accessible approach to learning farm law is perfect for innovative direct-to-consumer and sustainable farmers.
Sustainable Farm Law 101 isn't a set of boring lectures filled with legal lingo. This workshop is led by a legal professional familiar with farming, and a few farmer co-facilitators, guaranteeing a combination of on-the-ground experience, user-friendly legal education, and lots of input from participants. This is an engaging, energetic, useful workshop that will inspire participants to take concrete action to build stronger, more resilient farms!
What do farmers say about Sustainable Farm Law 101 workshops?
“Plain-spoken, good real world examples. Very comprehensive.”
“Way more approachable than expected! I feel like I can actually do this stuff the right way!”
“It was such an incredible gift to get so much valuable information even though I've only just begun learning about farming.”
Together, we will build strong local farms and resilient community businesses with the law on our side.
