MIFFS is excited to partner with Farm Commons to present:
"Cultivating Your Legally
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. Our “Cultivating Your Legally Resilient Farm” Workshop isn't a set of boring lectures filled with legal lingo. This workshop is led by a farm law expert and farmer co-presenters, guaranteeing you’ll pick up the practical wisdom and the 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 will 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. Cost of the workshop is $25 with lunch included.
