Are you wondering whether you should form an LLC, S corporation, or neither? Are you asking how to write an effective, comprehensive lease? What about hosting interns or working with volunteers; is that legal? How should a farm manage the risk that guests may get injured when they visit the operation? Farm law affects everyone, especially the most innovative, direct-to-consumer farmers. Answers aren't always easy to come by- but that's why the Cultivating Your Legally Resilient Farm workshop exists.

"Cultivating Your Legally Resilient Farm" 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. MIFFS is excited to partner with Farm Commons to present this dynamic workshop!

Farm Commons' collaborative, accessible approach to learning farm law alongside farmer-peers will set you on the right path. The workshop is led by a farm law expert and two local 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.

The workshop is filling up fast!
