In 1994, the Town of Eden created an Agricultural Advisory Committee in recognition of the importance of farming to the community. The committee helps ensure the continued viability of agriculture within the town and provides a conduit for feedback from the farm community to the town board and other town bodies. The committee advises the town on agricultural districts within its jurisdiction, proposed zoning changes or development in agricultural districts and county, state and federal legislation and its potential impact on the town. It also acts a forum between the farm community and the town of Eden.
