As an agricultural service provider, farmers and ranchers likely come to you with legal questions, such as whether or not its legal to have interns or whether they should form an LLC, corporation, or neither. As a non-attorney, do you wish you knew where to turn for the answers? 

Those answers aren’t always easy to come by — especially for the most innovative, direct-to-consumer producers. Guiding Resilience is a legal workshop designed just for you as an agricultural service provider, teaching the 10 best legal practices that you can share with producers without overstepping due bounds. You’ll walk away from this five-session, highly interactive, and facilitation-focused workshop ready to share your assets and wisdom to guide farmers and ranchers to legal solutions with confidence. Plus, you’ll have a group of fellow service providers to help keep you on track.

Join us in learning the 10 best practices of farm legal risk management over 5 weeks.

March 1: Farm Law as Creative Power
