The Town voted at Annual Town Meeting on May 16, 2011 to adopt a bylaw to establish an Agricultural Commission.
Agricultural Commissions advocate for farmers and agriculture and can help promote agricultural economic development, farmland preservation and agricultural revitalization. In addition to meeting a growing demand among consumers for local products, which are generally fresher, more nutritional and more flavorful than the supermarket alternatives, agriculture can be a local economic driver. As local businesses, farmers contribute to the local economy by providing jobs and by purchasing supplies and products locally.
