Are you a farmer or rancher looking to lease land in the North Coast region? Are you already leasing but wish to learn more about what makes a good farm or grazing lease? California FarmLink, The Grange Farm School and North Coast Opportunities invite you to join us for a Lease Clinic and Potluck!
This introductory workshop is geared towards farmers and ranchers in the first ten years of production who are looking to better understand the components of a good farm or grazing lease. Specific topics will include the legal and financial risks of poorly developed leases, leasing best practices, alternative lease clauses, and lease development and negotiation.
