According to Missouri’s May Beginning Farmer newsletter, “many beginning farmers find it hard to rummage through all the legal issues when it comes to marketing the crops and livestock they have grown. If you have found yourself in this predicament, then you’ll surely want to join us for these two webinars.

He grew up in a small town in the Missouri Ozarks and received a B.S. from Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. Ed is a 2009 graduate of Drake University Law School, graduating with a Certificate in Food and Agricultural Law. He began his fellowship with the Drake Agricultural Law Center in the Spring of 2010.

Probably the best known publication on legal information for direct marketing for farmers is The Legal Guide for Direct Farm Marketing (1999) which was written by Ed’s colleague Neil Hamilton and published from Drake University.”
