Leasing farmland is so commonplace that landowners, farmers, and ranchers may not think twice about the lease itself… until things go wrong. Prevent problems with a strong lease while building a path to a resilient future. This online workshop will help you understand what a lease should include and how to put it in writing. Get started with the tools, knowledge, and skills you need to create a strong document that works for your needs, whether you are a landowner, rancher, or farmer. Led by staff from Farm Commons, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering farmers to solve their own business law challenges in a community of support. To access their robust library of farm law print guides, podcasts, video tutorials, checklists, and more, visit the Farm Commons website.
Contact Taylor at email@example.com, with any questions.
Hosted by: Farm Commons Staff Attorney Chloe Forkner Johnson
Chloe Forkner Johnson is Farm Common’s Staff Attorney. Chloe’s work focuses on ensuring farmers and the agricultural community receive sharp legal analysis as she writes newsletters, books, guides, and supports curriculum development. Chloe farmed for many seasons, learning from Neil Taylor near her hometown in Ellenwood, GA, Ken Dawson of Maple Springs Farm in Cedar Grove, NC, and Kelly Morrison of Color Fields Farm in Durham, NC. Chloe earned her bachelor’s degree from New College of Florida and went on to study law at the University of Georgia School of Law in Athens, GA. She began her legal off-farm career as a public defender, providing legal services for low-income clients and, later, developing equity programs for lawyers and court systems with a non-profit in Raleigh, NC. As an agricultural professional, Chloe has advised farmers through the Brannan Law Firm in Hillsborough, NC, on small business formation, zoning, and real estate issues. Chloe most recently worked at the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) as the Local Foods Systems Manager. At CFSA, she led market access efforts and provided technical assistance to growers on GAP certification and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Chloe owns land with four friends in Cedar Grove, NC, and is slowly turning that raw piece of land into a homesite and a place to grow her food and flowers.
