Flash Update: The Small Farmer Program Worksheet
We know there are a lot of questions about how regulations affect our small farmer clients, and the answers are undoubtedly complicated and ever-changing. In an effort to organize the various categories of issues that farmers can start thinking about now, I wrote up a simple checklist of issues to go through with my clients.
The checklist evolved over the past few months into what I now call the “Small Farmer Program,” and I’ve sought input on the program from a County Ag Commissioner, a successful Bay Area consultant, my attorney colleagues, and dozens of small farmers and other cannabis business women and men. With their additional insight, the Small Farmer Program has become a helpful rule of thumb for our office to gauge where a farmer is on their path into the regulated era. Rather than keep this information internal, however, I want to share it with the community so folks can start looking over some of the categories of issues they may need to start thinking about if and when Nevada County issues permits.
I formatted this so you can answer a lot of these questions by yourself, although we are here if you need us.
