Announcements

Looking to add land to an existing NYS Certified Agricultural District

Annual Thirty Day Period for Landowners to Request Additions of Viable Agricultural Land to Existing Agricultural Districts

The Jefferson County Board of Legislators has set June 1st through June 30th of each year for the purpose accepting requests to add predominantly viable agricultural land to an existing NYS Certified Agricultural District in the County.

Viable agricultural land: actively farmed as well as land that is highly suitable for agricultural production.
A parcel of land is "predominantly" viable if a minimum of 51% of the parcel is viable agricultural land.
The purpose of NYS Certified Agricultural Districts is to encourage the continued use of farmland for agricultural production. The Agricultural District Program is based on a combination of landowner incentives and protections, all of which are designed to forestall the conversion of farmland to non-agricultural uses.

Landowners who wish to submit a request to add land to an existing NYS Certified Agricultural District may download the form from the Jefferson County Department of Planning web page under NYS Certified Agricultural Districts, or you may call the Jefferson County Department of Planning, (315) 785-3144 and ask for the 2022 Agricultural Annual Inclusion Form.

All requests must be submitted on the form provided by the Planning Department and must be received no later than June 30, 2022.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is spreading rapidly across the world.

Although cities have the most sick people, the disease has reached rural communities of New York as well. Everyone needs to take this very seriously. Agriculture is an essential business, so many of us will continue to go to work. However, we all need to take precautions to stay safe and help prevent further spread of the disease. The key things to do are limit contact with other people and keep everything very clean. We've prepared a new resource to help Spanish- and English-speaking farm employees access credible, multi-lingual information that they can use right away. Here are this links to a printable resource for farms to use:
English COVID 19 Procedures
Spanish COVID 19 Procedures
