Counseling the Local Food Movement

There are quite a few developments going on across the country as it pertains  to food and the law.   As this ever changing field continues to grow, so do the laws, regulations and interests involved as well.  One interesting topic to consider is how attorneys may counsel various parties in New York interested in participating in this area of the law.

Two interesting Lawline lectures by attorney Cari Rincker entitled Counseling the Local Food Movement in New York (Part 1) and Counseling the Local Food Movement in New York (Part 1)  illuminate the direct marketing, covering issues pertaining to farmers’ markets, roadside stands and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA’s); Home-based food processing (i.e., cottage food operations); Product liability; insurance; and Food Safety Modernization Act exemptions.

It’s actually pretty remarkable how much there is to consider before counseling a local food movement regardless of the locale. Even more so, it seems, in the Big Apple.
