Tricky farm law questions? Farm Commons is here for you.

Hi Folks,

As agricultural professionals, you shape the future of farming. You empower your community by responding to real-life issues in real-time and providing practical advice and resources because improving lives is not just what you do; it's who you are.

But sometimes, even the most knowledgeable and understanding agricultural professional needs support. This spring, as you respond to the ongoing HPAI outbreak, enduring pandemic crises, and supply-chain issues, are farmers and ranchers in your community asking you tough legal questions? Not sure how to respond?

Don't worry-- find solutions, reassurance, and community at Farm Commons.

This June, learn how to help your producers avoid legal stress, and join your peers on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, for Guiding Resilience – our popular, five-week, highly-interactive, in-depth legal workshop designed specifically for you as an agricultural professional.

Guiding Resilience will teach you the ten best legal practices you can share with producers without overstepping due bounds. Along the way, you'll be able to network with fellow service providers and educators to keep each other on track.

In the past year, over 100 agricultural and service providers have taken Guiding Resilience, and here is what your peers are saying:

"This was one of the best built and most clearly delivered workshops I've ever attended. It gave me immediately applicable tools and also helped me consider ways that I want to stretch and grow to improve my knowledge toolkit and instincts as a farm support provider."

"Thank you for hosting the Guiding Resilience course. It has truly been a valuable class. You have done a great job at keeping virtual (adult) education exciting, engaging, and easy to follow. I have especially enjoyed the way you walk through scenarios to keep us analytical and working through problems/solutions."
