About: Freedom Food Farm is an 88-acre organic-certified farm in Raynham, Massachusetts, that produces a wide variety of produce, herbs, eggs, grains, honey, and pasture-raised meat. Chuck Currie and Marie Kaziunas started the farm in 2012, and they strive to provide nutritious food using holistic practices such as cover-cropping and field rotation. Freedom Food Farm has a CSA and sells at farmers’ markets around the region.
Legal Need: Chuck and Marie sought legal assistance through the Legal Food Hub when the land they leased was sold to new owners. They wanted assistance in reviewing and negotiating the terms of the new operating agreement to ensure the farm would have a smooth transition.
Lawyer: The Legal Food Hub matched Chuck and Marie with attorneys Jasmine Haddad and Robert Burke of WilmerHale. Both Jasmine and Robert are experienced in business law, making them well-positioned to help with advising regarding an operating agreement that will provide stability for the farm’s future.
