The Coalition of Agricultural Mediation Programs is a network of all USDA Certified State Programs offering mediation services to the agricultural community for 30 years. Currently, 42 certified state programs are in operation.
From farm credit issues to disputes over participation in USDA programs, the state mediation programs demonstrate that regardless of the nature of the dispute, mediation can improve communication and repair the relationship between the parties, enable the parties to tailor solutions that work for them, and is generally faster and cheaper than traditional litigation.

State agricultural mediation programs are continuing to offer services during the pandemic. We are following the latest guidance, and offering alternatives to face-to-face meetings, such as phone or video, whenever possible. Contact your state program to learn more.
