Charlton, NY: Right-to-Farm Ordinance

The town of Charlton established a right-to-farm law in 1996.  The law is well integrated with the state Agricultural Districts Law.  The law establishes a farmer’s right to conduct reasonable and necessary agricultural practices subject to some limitations.  The right-to-farm law also stipulates that a real estate disclosure notice be attached to a purchase and sale contract at the time an offer to purchase a farm is made.  Lastly, the law specifies a local process for resolving agricultural disputes.
