This book aims to be a practical guide for New York farmers and food entrepreneurs. It gives a general overview of a myriad of food and agriculture law issues including business formation, contract law, confidentiality, farm leases, environmental regulation, animal law, land use and zoning, right-to-farm law, intellectual property, farm transportation, employment and labor law, property law, wind energy leases, direct farm marketing, cottage food operations, food labeling, and on-farm poultry slaughter. It’s a “must read” for New York farms, agri-business owners, and food entrepreneurs to help them understand the breadth of laws that affect their business.
