Protect Your Farm

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 second 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.
