Saturday, February 29—9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
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. This workshop is led by a farm law expert and OEFFA-member farmer co-presenters, guaranteeing you’ll pick up the practical wisdom and the knowledge you need to navigate legal issues with confidence.
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.
Framed around the 10 steps every farm needs to take to build legal resilience, you’ll leave this workshop with a personal action plan, checklists, and model documents for your own farm. Learn how to build a resilient business with the law on your side.
