Hamilton County Right to Farm

On November 1, 2012 the Hamilton County Board of Supervisors passed Local Law No.2 of 2012 to enact a Right-to-Farm Law. The law is intended to head off disputes and establish methods to resolve them when they do arise, partially by promoting understanding of the necessary day-to-day operations involved in agriculture.It recognizes the economic and cultural values of farming and promotes effective communication among farmers and non-farming neighbors. Growing your own has become more and more popular in the past decade with millennials joining the ranks of their grandparents who have always grown their own food.

We’ve sent a copy of this law to all local realtors. If you are working with a nearby realtor and they are unaware of this law contact our office and we will be happy to help you. If you would like your own copy please click on the links below:

Without farms and farmers we’d be out of luck, so a big thank you to the agricultural community!
