Agriculture in Putnam County is a diverse, multimillion dollar industry and a crucial land use that strengthens our local food supply, economic vitality, quality of life, community character, picturesque landscape, environment, and recreational opportunities. Top agricultural and farming activities in the County include equine and livestock operations, greenhouses, nurseries, orchards, maple syrup, hay and corn production. These lands are under intense pressure and at great risk of being converted to nonagricultural development. The Agricultural and Farmland protection plan is meant to inspire decisive action to preserve the remaining farms and agriculture in Putnam County.
