On April 6th from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., farmers in the Lower Eastern Shore counties will have an opportunity to learn more about the agricultural land leasing issues at the upcoming Farm Leasing Workshop.  The workshop is being held at the Somerset County Extension Office and sponsored by Agriculture Law Education Initiative, University of Maryland Extension, Maryland Department of Agriculture, and Maryland FarmLink. Funding is provided by USDA-NIFA and the Northeast Extension Risk Management Education Center.

            This Leasing Workshop will help landlords and tenants better understand the leasing process, communication, dispute resolution process, and how to find and market available farmland.  We will focus on legal issues related to developing a lease, tools that exist to aid in writing a lease and setting up a rental range, agricultural conflict resolution services available in Maryland, communicating with the other party, and an introduction to Maryland’s FarmLink.
