I recently finished a webinar series on the same topics as the recent workshops on Owning Rural Land In Maryland: Answering Basic Questions Landowners Have. Based on feedback from the workshops, we included two additional topics in the webinar series. The webinars included Q&As with an insurance agent and two attorneys who often work with agricultural operations. Videos from those sessions are now available online.
The insurance session featured Tim Bishton from the Crow Insurance Agency in Middleton, Delaware. In the session, Tim covered insurance coverage basics and explained the importance of insurance for many agricultural operations. The session is available below.
The session featured two attorneys featured Stephanie Brophy, partner with Dulany Leahy Curtis & Brophy LLP, and Brooke Schumm, a principal with Levin & Gavin. Stephanie is the current chair of the Maryland State Bar Association Agriculture Law Section, and Brooke is the current treasurer. In this webinar, both discussed their practices and strategies for agricultural operators regarding when to engage with an attorney. You can watch the discussion down below.
We covered several other topics with this webinar series, but those sessions were not recorded. If you want to learn more about trespasser liability, fencing law, livestock liability, agricultural leasing laws, right-to-farm law, and estate planning, you can check out our online course here. This course, the workshops, and the webinar series were funded by the Northeast Extension Risk Education Center and USDA-NIFA. This is material is based upon work supported by USDA/NIFA under Award Number 2021‐70027‐34693.
