Managing farm and food legal risk during COVID-19

  • Rachel Armstrong, Farm Commons
  • Because running a farm or food business is challenging enough already, this workshop breaks down the 5 most important things you can do right now to build legal resilience in the face of COVID-19. Farms that have been around for years or are just getting started will benefit from our clear action steps, supported by helpful guides and materials. This workshop will address the basics of liability and insurance, employment law, business structures, and food safety, and how they work together to create a strong legal pathway through challenges. Led by staff from Farm Commons, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering farmers to solve their own business law challenges in a community of support.
