Constantly under scrutiny from consumers, environmentalists, and even neighbors, we defend livestock and poultry farmers in court, before administrative agencies, and in the court of public opinion.

Specialty crop producers

Specialty crops such as fruits and vegetables require special contracts. We help farmers who raise these crops as well.

Landowners and Tenants
