Cooperative Farming

A guidebook providing frameworks of farming with peers. It shares the knowledge food hubs need to design their own business structures and agreements that fit their own unique “cooperative farming” model. Topics include sharing resources & services (marketing & distribution, supply, equipment and labor), group managed and collective farms (worker cooperatives, multi-member LLCs, farm communities, considerations for farming together), structuring a group enterprise (membership, governance, financial agreements, legal entities for group businesses) and making it work ( collaboration & conflict, meeting & facilitation, feasibility, planning & financing)
