Agricultural Commissions

Would you like farming and farmlands to remain a vital part of your community?

If so, your town may benefit from forming an agricultural commission.

A town agricultural commission is an appointed town standing committee whose members represent the farming community, encourage economic development, and protect farmlands and farm businesses.
