Indispensable Legal Resource for Practitioners or Food Business Owners
By Jason Foscolo on November 5, 2013
As a legal practitioner with an entire shelf of reference books, I’ve read two types of legal resources over the course of my career. There are authoritative treatises intended to give other attorneys subject matter expertise in a specific legal discipline, and there are resources intended to distill legal principles into a practical format for use by non-attorneys. This book is that rare publication which manages to provide excellent guidance for both groups of readers.
For the legal professional, this book is the comprehensive resource you will need to begin to understand the issues that affect farm operations and food businesses. This is the complete issue-spotting resource to which any attorney needs to refer before counseling a client with a business in the food space.
For those who own commercial farms or food businesses, this resource has just about everything you’d need to know about how to protect your investment. Like it or not, the food industry is intrusively regulated, and understanding the law as it relates to farm production or food processing is just a cost of doing business. Farmers and food entrepreneurs need to understand how the law affects their business. This book will either give them the tools they need to comply with the law or give them the education they need to ask the right questions of their attorney if and when the need arises.
With such a wide range of topics covered in such an accessible manner, I’d recommend this book to the widest range of readers possible. This is an outstanding resource for an attorney operating in a rural area, any attorney who has or who seeks to have clients in the food industry, any nonprofit corporation operated for the benefit of farmland preservation, and anyone with a farming or food business.
Though the Guide is marketed to New York farms and food businesses, much of the content covers legal issues of universal applicability. I’d still recommend this resource for anyone working in the legal or food industry outside the state of New York.

Perfect and easy to use reference for any questions concerning food production and agriculture. Great for farmers market producers or larger scale producers- every topic is covered. Like having a lawyer on retainer. The best guide available.
Nips problems arising on the farm or in the food industry in the bud!!

As a mediator and recovering litigator, I found the information in this book useful for my general understanding of agriculture law as applied in the context of mediation. It also is a great neutral reference to help me educate my mediation clients. They can use it as a resource and reality tester in their disagreements.
This is an easy to read yet comprehensive resource needed in the agriculture venue to help attorneys and parties understand the issues that affect farm operations and food businesses. Cari has used relevant issues to highlight how attorneys can practically use this book as a guide.
This book will help those who own commercial farms or food businesses address issues early and find solutions before problems arise. The food industry has numerous regulations. Understanding the law, as it relates to farm production or food processing, will minimize the cost of making unintended mistakes while on the job. This book not only gives them the tools they will need to comply with the law, it provides them with the information they will need to ask the right questions.
I’d recommend this book to anyone operating a farm or food business and their attorney.
The Guide covers content on legal issues involving farms and food service that are universal applicability. I’d recommend this resource to anyone working in the food industry.
