Legally Resilient Farm Pre-Conference Workshop
January 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
A Food & Farming Pre-Conference Workshop
Forming a business the right way, practicing food safety measures, negotiating sales contracts, hiring workers, filing taxes… 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.
“Cultivating Your Legally Resilient Farm” Workshop isn’t a set of boring lectures filled with legal lingo. This workshop is led by a legal professional familiar with farming and one or two 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!
