BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — As a Regional Navigator in American Farmland Trust NY’s Farmland for a New Generation initiative, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County is very proud to partner with Pace University Food & Farm Business Law Clinic to offer an in-person opportunity to learn about their FREE program for farmers focused on food and farm issues. The clinic, centered at Pace University works with clients from across New York State, including small farm businesses, artisan food manufacturers, craft beverage entrepreneurs, and related nonprofit organizations, while also emphasizing its focus on providing direct transactional business law experience to law students.
Jack Hornickel, ESQ, of the Pace University Food & Farm Business Law Clinic will be our speaker as we explore the components of a successful land lease and lease negotiations. He will also discuss common areas of negotiation and conflict in the land leasing process. Whether you need one to comply with NYS Agricultural Assessment, are looking to take on additional farmland from a landowner, or simply want your land to remain in production – this workshop is for you. Or maybe you are working with a young farmer and want to ensure that you are able to protect both your interests and be sensitive to their needs and limited access to resources.
Our presenters will also discuss their FREE legal services consultation program for farmers in NYS. If you are a farmer make sure to come with your questions! If you are working with a farmer, make sure to bring them to take advantage of this opportunity!
