2013 Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plan

In 2010 the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets awarded an agricultural planning grant to the Town of Ballston. This grant enabled the creation of a new Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plan through a public process led by the Town of Ballston Agricultural and Farmland Protection Committee. This document provides a snapshot of agriculture in the Town of Ballston, and identifies actions for the Town and others to act upon in order to protect farmland, support the viability of farms, and boost economic development in the next decade.
