Coalition of Agricultural Mediation Programs

The USDA Certified State Agricultural Mediation Programs have been providing mediation services to the agricultural community for 30 years. There are currently 42 certified state programs 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. The Coalition of Agricultural Mediation Programs (CAMP) is a network of these 42 state programs, which work together to sustain and support the work of mediating in agricultural and rural disputes.
