Agricultural Mediation Can Help Resolve Disputes

The Coalition of Agricultural Mediation Programs (CAMP) is a network of 43 USDA-Certified State Agricultural Mediation Programs. Each state program provides free support to farmers and ranchers for resolving ag-related debt, lease issues, neighbor disputes, farm transition planning, organic certification, and more. Mediation is a confidential process where the parties control the outcome and avoid costly litigation. These private meetings can improve communication, repair relationships, and enable the parties to tailor solutions that work for them. A map of participating states and contact information for each program is available online.
