This project addressed issues of labor management and human capital to help farmers identify labor risks and provide them with strategies to improve communications with employees, farm partners, and family labor. Many of the farmers in our region are beginning, small,or specialty crop producers. 42 producers participated in the workshops. Workshop topics included basics of hiring and training staff, including health and safety issues; labor laws; managing and motivating people; and mediating inter employee or family disputes. Upon completion, farmers will understand labor-related risks, labor law, their personal strengths and weaknesses as a manager, and strategies for human resource management and they will have new tools for hiring and managing workers, mediating interpersonal conflicts and maintaining good boundaries between business and personal roles. Workshop lessons were also adapted and made available to an additional 56 farmers on-line.
