It’s every farmer or rancher’s worst nightmare: Someone claims to have gotten sick from the food they produced. No matter how safe the operation is, the risk is always there. The good news is there are ways to manage and mitigate the impacts of this risk. We’ll discuss the best practices every farmer or rancher can adopt to get a foothold in managing their food safety liability exposure.
Farm Commons helps farms build a common cause for legal resilience — and a new future for small business law in the United States. A single legal vulnerability can be make or break for a farm. But farmers, ranchers, and agriculture communities already have their hands full taking on goliaths like monopolistic agribusiness companies. Local farms need a leg up.
Farm Commons empowers agricultural communities to resolve their own legal vulnerabilities, within an ecosystem of support. Farms today are getting squeezed by gigantic social and economic forces. They need shared tools for resilience.
Through Farm Commons farmers, ranchers, and agricultural professionals are enabled to:
Understand farm business law as it is now, and how to effectively use the tools it offers
Shape the evolution of farm business law to achieve their shared goals, and
Work effectively with attorneys and other professionals to create long term legal resilience.
Farm business owners should be in charge of the legal dynamics that shape their destiny every day. Farm Commons assists agri-businesses achieve much of that without courtrooms or legislative change.
