Agricultural Law Center Projects

The Agricultural Law Center provides outreach for the next generation of American farmers, landowners, and agricultural entrepreneurs.

Projects, research, and events can be found on the Agricultural Law Center's outreach website.

Two publications are shared through websites: 

Legal Guide for Direct Farm Marketing

The Direct Marketer's Guide website was developed to make The Legal Guide for Direct Farm Marketing more accessible, ensure compliance with regulations, provide updates on direct farm marketing law and policy, and take advantage of direct marketing programs.

The Landowners's Guide to Sustainable Farm Leasing

The Sustainable Agriculture and Land Tenure Initiative is a joint project by Drake's Agricultural Law Center and the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture at Iowa State University.

It is intended to assist landowners and farmers in developing farm lease arrangements that are profitable and sustainable for the landowner, farmer, community, and the land.

The initiative analyzes existing data and information on land ownership patterns; private contracts affecting farmland, including farm lease agreements, recreational leases, ecosystem service contracts, and farm management agreements; and local and state policies that impact agricultural sustainability and stewardship.

Visit the Sustainable Agriculture and Land Tenure Initiative website.
