Did you know that when a farmer starts drying herbs for tea or turning elderberries into syrup, a farm is potentially subject to different zoning or land use rules? In this podcast, Eva and Rachel help you avoid getting caught off-guard by exploring how and why zoning is a powerful decision making tool for navigating the legal transition point between growing herbal ingredients and making herbal/botanical products with regards to land use regulations. You’ll also hear important insights from farmers who researched their zoning codes and, as a result, are better informed and able to make the best decisions for their business goals.

This is the final episode of a special 3-part mini series on boosting legal resilience when making and selling botanical products. Check out the other episodes in the list below!
