Mediation as a Problem Solving Tool for Farmers and Agribusinesses
Operating an agricultural enterprise in today’s uncertain economic climate is both operationally challenging and personally taxing. Having to make complex business decisions while maintaining relationships with employees, business partners, neighbors, suppliers, creditors, and regulators, farmers are constantly having to solve problems. Mediation has been shown to be a helpful tool when making plans for the future or managing important relationships. Mediators have been helping farmers solve these problems for more than 35 years in a way that ensures confidentiality and allows producers to maintain their autonomy and independence.
