"This isn't about Farmer Brown anymore..."

The NYT had a nice piece about a Maine case regarding whether the state can require a business license from a farmer if purchases are made only directly from a farmer and the farmer does not advertise.  See the article here.

I've followed this "food sovereignty" issue throughout this spring on the blog and through my clinic's project on agritourism.  I've come to believe that we're on the cusp of significant regulatory change--and potentially significant litigation--as agritourism operations proliferate especially at the rural-urban interface.
