Our local economy is dominated by the agricultural industry. As the agricultural industry has become more sophisticated, rules and regulations have grown proportionately. All sections of the agricultural industry face increasing scrutiny and compliance issues from a myriad of regulations, local, state and federal.
We have extensive experience in the operation and regulation of dairies, farms, ranches and other agricultural pursuits.
Negotiations and closing of loans for agricultural businesses can be a stressful and time consuming activity. They often involve complex documents which are difficult to understand. Planning and Zoning issues routinely face agricultural enterprises, for such matters as a rezone of a parcel for new business locations, or obtaining a new or modified permit for a dairy or other livestock confinement operation. Our firm has significant experience with these issues faced by agriculture businesses. We assist our clients with all aspects of agricultural law, no matter what the size or nature of the business is.
