Land Leasing Basics
Legal Training For Illinois Small Farms
Legal risks can be fatal to a farm business and addressing them proactively can keep farms in business. Just as important, understanding legal issues can dispel anxiety and help farmers realize their power to control their circumstances.
This is the third in a quarterly webinar series for Illinois small farmers including new, beginning, and urban farmers brought to you by Illinois Extension's Local Food Systems and Small Farms team and presented by Farm Commons
Monday Dec 18, 2023 at 7 pm CST: Land Leasing Basics presented by Chloe Forkner Johnson, Staff Attorney, Farm Commons. Leasing farmland is so commonplace that landowners, farmers, and ranchers may not think twice about the lease itself… until things go wrong. Prevent problems with a strong lease while building a path to a resilient future. This online workshop will help you understand what a lease should include and how to put it in writing. Get started with the tools, knowledge, and skills you need to create a strong document that works for your needs, whether you are a landowner, rancher, or farmer.
Cost: Free for Illinois farmers.
