Farm Protection in Halcott

Is Your Farm a Part of Our Agricultural District?
The Town of Halcott’s Land Use Code emphasizes that Halcott is farm-friendly.  One of the protective tools available to farmers is to join our agricultural district. This process is explained in the brochure, Know the Facts: New York’s Agricultural Districts Law. There is a 30 day period each September in which landowners can request to have their land added to the district. Just complete the two forms here, Agricultural District Review Worksheet and NYS Addition Request Form and send them, by the end of September to:
