Many farms and agribusinesses operate as a DBA (“doing business as”) or an “assumed name.” Many businesses in the state of New York, including those involved in the food and agriculture industry, are not properly registered. Pursuant to Section 130 of the NY General Business Law, no person or entity can “(i) carry on or conduct or transact business in this state under any name or designation other than his or its real name, or (ii) carry on or conduct or transact business in this state as a member of a partnership” unless a certificate is properly filed.
