Agriculture in Michigan is strong—it is our state's number two industry, employing more than 900,000 people and contributing over $100 billion to our state's economy. Michigan farms produce diverse commodities ranging from tart cherries, blueberries, and dairy products, to dry edible beans, corn, and sugar beets, to begonias, poultry and eggs, and cucumbers. Farmers, agronomists, farm loan officers, insurance agents, pesticide applicators, nursery operators, food processors, grain handlers, truck drivers, equipment dealers, veterinarians, scientists, and many more agribusiness people all play an important role in the Michigan agriculture economy.
Because of the scale and diversity of agriculture in Michigan, many different and complicated legal issues arise day-to-day. Farmers and agribusiness people need help from attorneys that understand the business of Michigan agriculture as well as the laws that apply to the industry. Foster Swift has been privileged to serve the Michigan agriculture community for years, and we bring our experience and industry commitment to our representation.
