NEWARK Farmers can learn more about farm contracts and what they can do to reduce risks through an Ohio State University Extension farm contract law workshop.
"Keeping Up with Contracts," offered by OSU Extension's Agricultural and Resource Law Program, is to take place 6:30-9:30 p.m. Thursday at Ohio State University Newark campus.
The free workshop is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture North Central Risk Management Education Center. However, attendance is limited so participants are encouraged to register by Monday.
Participants are to work with agricultural attorneys to learn how to create a legal contract, understand contract terms, assess contracts for the farm, build a contracts library and enforce legal rights.
Contracts to be reviewed include fruit and vegetable production, farmer's market, grain production, restaurant or store vendor, meat production, animal breeding, farm leases, easements, alternative energy, mineral/oil and gas and financing arrangements.
