Hello Michigan Organic Farmers!

MIFFS is excited to partner with Farm Commons to offer the information-packed workshop "Cultivating Your Legally Resilient Farm" on Friday, March 6, 2020. Farm Commons’ collaborative, accessible approach to learning farm law alongside farmer-peers will set you on the right path. “Cultivating Your Legally Resilient Farm”  isn't a set of boring lectures filled with legal lingo. This workshop is led by a farm law expert and local farmer co-presenters Rebecca Titus and Jerry Hebron, guaranteeing you’ll pick up the practical wisdom and the knowledge you need to navigate legal issues with confidence. 

Framed around the 10 steps every farm needs to take to build legal resilience, you’ll leave this workshop with a personal action plan for your own farm. Checklists, model documents, and more show farmers how to get the job done. Together, we will build strong local farms and resilient community businesses with the law on our side. The workshop addresses farmers’ greatest vulnerabilities in land matters and leasing, business structures, farm employment law, diversification and agritourism, as well as liability and food safety issues. 

Registration for the workshop is $25 and includes locally produced and sourced lunch. Check out more details and register for the event today at
