For the Love of Goats
Learn about your responsibilities and liabilities as a goat owner with Eva Moss, Farmer and Partner Development Manager at Farm Commons, which is a non-profit specializing in legal education for farmers.
If you want to know why I’m not doing goat yoga on our farm, it’s one of the first thing we talk about in this podcast. We also talk about what you need to do to protect yourself if you do want to start making money with your goats, whether with making cheese or having goat yoga classes. We also answer these important questions:
Do signed liability waivers avoid lawsuits?
What kind of insurance do you need? (A general farm policy isn’t going to protect you.)
Should you incorporate?
Under what circumstances are you liable if a goat bites someone or knocks them down?
How do you protect yourself from lawsuits if you are making goat products like cheese or soap?
