Consumer demand for locally grown products is increasing while smaller farms face increased scrutiny from state and local regulatory agencies, even as state legislatures begin to lessen the regulatory burden. In this workshop, we will explore federal, state, and local regulations that particularly impact small farms. Topics include the Federal Meat Inspection Act and Poultry Products Inspection Act, state regulation of raw dairy, FSMA safety regulations, Right to Farm laws, and even the use of Livestock Guardian Dogs.
