I recently wrote this article giving an overview of local food law in New York. It gives an overview of the myriad of legal issues affecting farmers and food entrepreneurs involved in the local food movement including direct farm marketing, cottage food operation law, and a checklist of other legal issues such food safety, contract law, land use and zoning, insurance law, employment law, food labeling, Right-to-Farm law, and farm animal welfare law. Enjoy!
