J. Haskins Law Practices Agriculture Law in Florida & North Carolina
Farms face unique risks and regulatory obstacles. Jesse provides the following services to strengthen food communities.
Food communities may consist of farms, ranches, farmers’ markets, composting services, consumers, and landlords. Attorney Jesse Haskins prepares and reviews written agreements to ensure healthy relationships among food community stakeholders. Examples include leases, farm purchases and sales, conservation easements, and community supported agriculture agreements, solar leases, and cell tower leases.
Every level of government saddles food communities with several different types of regulations: workers’ compensation, safety, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), land use, employment, and security regulations. The consequences for noncompliance with hemp regulations can be devastating. The volume of these regulations can be overwhelming, and the legalese can be dizzying. Attorney Jesse Haskins provides clarity to food communities burdened by myriad regulatory regimens.
Agricultural land is eligible for lower tax rates, but your local property appraiser may not see your land that way. Attorney Jesse Haskins will help.
