Gain Some Peace of Mind this Winter. Legal Workshops Going Fast!

Hi Folks,

As the winter begins, many farmers and ranchers are reviewing their business structures, considering diversification options, and developing strategic marketing goals and events for the upcoming year. Wintertime offers the perfect opportunity for farmers to jumpstart another season by resolving their legal vulnerabilities. At Farm Commons we believe:

Every farmer and rancher can build legal resilience.
Every agriculture support person can help them get there.  

Beginning in just two weeks, we are offering two online interactive workshops to help you realize this vision. Reserve your spot today because tickets are going fast.

Discovering Resilience empowers farmers and ranchers with the knowledge to identify and resolve their most pressing legal vulnerabilities. Upon completing this 5-week interactive workshop you'll learn the 10 best practices of farm legal risk management, build an individualized action plan so that you can take immediate steps to build your farm's legal resiliency, and connect with other farmers going through similar situations. 

Grab a spot in our Discovering Resilience Winter 2022 session:
Wednesdays (2-4pm CST), beginning on January 5

Guiding Resilience empowers agricultural support providers to guide farmers and ranchers towards resolution of their legal vulnerabilities. Be there for them when your producers ask legal questions without creating more risk (for yourself or anyone else). This 5-week interactive workshop keeps you engaged and gives you the info you need while networking with colleagues in the field.

Thursdays (2-4pm CST), beginning on January 6

Workshops are a free benefit of membership. Learn about joining our farm law community with a Producer Membership or Institutional Membership so you can get full access to our extensive library of resources and support materials.

If cost is a barrier- reach out. Scholarships are available.

Not sure if these workshops are right for you? Get a taste of what you have to gain by checking out our free tip sheet on sorting out the basics of agritourism legal risks! Also, check out our tip sheet on farm insurance, as it's the primary way to address the legal risk of liability for on-farm events.

Wishing you a wonderful and safe holiday season.
