RE: Input Sought on Draft On-Farm Direct Marketing AMP

Dear Mayor:

The State Agriculture Development Committee (SADC) at its December 8, 2011 meeting reviewed a working draft of an On-Farm Direct Marketing Agriculture Management Practice (AMP) and recommended circulating the draft to solicit broad feedback from the agricultural community and public.

The draft AMP clarifies terms in the Right to Farm Act and establishes performance-based standards that commercial farms would have to meet to be eligible for right-to-farm protection for retail farm markets and for various agriculture-related educational and farm-based recreational activities and events.

We have been asked to share the working draft of the On-Farm Direct Marketing AMP with Mayors. The SADC is looking to get comments and feedback from everyone with an interest in this issue.

Further details on this proposal, including an overview memo, background notes, background presentation, and the draft AMP, can be accessed at: http://nj.gov/agriculture/sadc/news/hottopics/index.html.

Comments on the draft should be submitted by April 15th to the SADC, PO Box 330, Trenton, NJ 08625 or sadc@ag.state.nj.us.

Very truly yours,

 

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
