I am very happy to announce that I was recently added to the mediation roster with the New Jersey State Agriculture Development Committee (“SADC”). The mediation is free for agriculture producers. The program hears Right to Farm and other U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) disputes (e.g., agriculture credit, conservation programs).
You can find more information about the program here. The rules for the program are found here. You can also find more information on the USDA mediation program here. New York has a similar program.
This program does not cover all types of disputes that an agriculture producer may be involved with. I am available to be hired privately to mediate other types of food/agriculture disputes. I’m also available for “virtual mediation” via Skype and for long-distance travel, if necessary.
