WELCOME TO THE
ENFIELD AGRICULTURAL COMMISSION WEBPAGE!
Goals & Responsibilities
Farm Land Preservation - Farmland preservation is the need to preserve and protect the agricultural properties for future generations. This need for protection is driven by uncertainty caused by various factors, such as urban development, population growth, food security, climate change, etc. The Enfield Agricultural Commission is a dedicated commission designed to assist farmers with the Farmland Preservation Program and the Community Farmland Preservation Program. The Commission serves as a resource to assist local Enfield Farms with preserving and protecting their land as well as assisting with other areas, like Farmland Restoration.
