Legal Guide to the Business of Farming
The Legal Guide to the Business of Farming in Vermont addresses the legal structure of the farm business; farm transfer and estate planning; farmland tenure and leasing; and regulation of agriculture and land use, farm labor, organic agriculture, and on-farm food processing and marketing. It was developed as reference tool but it is not a substitute for legal advice. Rather, it is meant to be used by farmers and aspiring farmers to help develop a list of questions for an attorney, accountant, or farm service provider. Farmers may also use it to identify and address issues that need to be included in the farm's business plan or to become better informed consumers of legal or farm viability services.
