From hiring workers, leasing or buying land, implementing food safety measures, negotiating sales, forming an LLC, filing taxes, getting insurance and so on—legal issues work their way into every aspect of the sustainable farm. The good news is that developing a strong, legally resilient farm business is easier than you think!

- Business Organization
- Food Safety
