Eden, NY: Right-to-Farm Ordinance

The town of Eden passed a right-to-farm law in 2001.  The law establishes a farmer’s right to conduct agricultural practices if those practices meet certain standards.  The law also establishes an informal, local process for resolving disputes between farmers and non-farmers.  The right-to-farm law’s intention and purpose must be considered by the town when processing applications for rezoning, site plan approvals and special use permits within one mile of a farm.
