This course is designed to give future farmers, farm managers, and food entrepreneurs an introduction to the laws and government regulations related to food production. This course will seek to demystify how food regulations are made and enforced, and for students to better understand the interaction between food producer and government regulator. At the end of the course, students will be in a better position to assess in their own businesses when they may be able to resolve their own legal issues and when it may be wise to rely upon outside legal counsel. The course will focus on sustainable agriculture and food production, with an eye to both government regulation and government resources becoming available for small farmers. Part of the Online Certificate in Sustainable Food and Farming and the Sustainable Food and Farming Associate's Degree.
