Discovering Resilience: A legal workshop for farmers and ranchers

Hi Folks,

We wanted to be sure you knew about our online workshop on farm law for farmers and ranchers nationwide. Consider signing up- class begins the week of March 1!

Discovering Resilience: A legal workshop for farmers and ranchers (Held Online)

Farmers and ranchers: Do legal questions keep you up at night? Do you wish you knew where to turn for the answers? Those answers aren't always easy to come by — especially for the most innovative, direct-to-consumer farmers.

Discovering Resilience is a legal workshop designed just for you. The workshop empowers farmers and ranchers with the legal knowledge and skills they need to resolve legal vulnerability in 5 core areas of farm law: business structures, insurance, employment law, land leasing and purchasing, and diversification (value-added and agritourism).

"I absolutely loved my time in the course and greatly appreciated the groups questions. The topics were so clearly discussed. Extremely helpful in clarifying risks and helping me better articulate how we manage our risk to consumers."

This isn't a boring, powerpoint-driven impractical legal class. This is the most hands-on farm law workshop you'll find. You'll create your own farm law action plan, unique to your operation, with support from peers and legal experts along the way. This five week highly interactive and producer-focused workshop is framed around the 10 legal best practices every farmer and rancher need to take to build resilience.

Cost is $49. Plus, this includes a one-year membership to Farm Commons where you'll have full access to our curated set of guides, webinars, resource library, and more (launching March 1)!
