Planning for Agriculture in New York: A Toolkit for Towns and Counties

American Farmland Trust's new publication, Planning for Agriculture in New York: A Toolkit for Towns and Counties helps communities engage farmers and rural landowners in local planning efforts; assess current town policies and their effectiveness; and understand the range of tools available to help New York towns and counties support local farms. The guide contains case studies demonstrating how towns and counties are successfully planning for agriculture. Publications, state laws, local plans and ordinances are available on a CD of reference materials that accompanies the hard-copy version of the guide. Many of the resources also are posted on the FIC web site.
