Like most farmers, I find the world of legal issues can be quite intimidating and overwhelming.
Fortunately, Farm Commons takes complex issues and creates resources and tools that go beyond breaking down the complexity, reading them feels like you are sitting around the kitchen table over a cup of coffee talking to a smart friend. I love how their approach is that we're all on a learning journey together and that many legal issues are truly grey with no definitive right or wrong answer. Instead of just telling you what to do, Farm Commons provides the information and right questions to ask so you can make the best decision for you and your farm business.
