A new Ohio Agricultural Law Blog post has been posted that many might find appropriate this holiday season.
Food is likely on the minds of many people as we head into the holiday season. Being an agricultural attorney, it’s hard to think about food without also worrying about food product liability. Whether growing turkey or romaine lettuce, producing food for human consumption is a risk-laden endeavor that can lead to legal liability for a farmer. That’s why knowing and following Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) is imperative for farmers who raise produce, eggs, meats, and other foods for direct human consumption. Employing those production practices is critical to producing a safe food product. But what if a food isn’t safe and causes illness or death?
Our colleagues in Licking County will host a New and Small Farm College in 2020. There will be multiple topics discussed that may be beneficial to Franklin County producers.
