Free Workshop on Guiding Farmers to Legal Resiliency
Minnesota Ag Connection - 09/09/2019

Agriculture educators and support persons want to help farmers navigate farm business structures, liability, farmland leases/land issues, and other legal aspects of their farm businesses. In fact, 71% of agriculture professionals say legal questions come up at least once per week in the course of their work.

Unfortunately, most agriculture professionals don't feel confident in guiding farmers to legal resiliency- they worry that they don't know the law and don't have accurate resources to offer. The stakes are high: 66% of farmers don't have adequate insurance for their farm operation, just 7% have a written operating agreement or bylaws. Employment law confusion is endemic.

With good training, agriculture support persons like Extension agents, agency staff, nonprofit professionals, and technical advisors can provide clear, accurate farm law information that reduces legal risk. A free workshop will show how.

Join for a full-day workshop that will help 1) understand the 12 most important things you need to know about farm employment law, land matters, business structures, liability and insurance, agritourism and adding value, 2) guide farmers to take at least one of 12 basic steps to build legal resiliency.

It will be held Sept. 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Carondelet Center in St. Paul (part of the St. Catherine's campus), 1890 Randolph Ave, St Paul.
