Agricultural Navigator

The Agricultural Navigator is a conduit for farmers, municipal officials, and economic development specialists to provide impartial information and advice when local regulations/actions that may impact agriculture, farmland, or agricultural businesses are proposed.

The Dutchess County Agricultural Navigator coordinates, collaborates, and communicates with County and municipal officials, the farming community, agricultural organizations, and other agencies on:

  • Agricultural issues and solutions;
  • Economic viability and sustainability of farming; and
  • Opportunities and feasibility of new infrastructures related to agriculture.

The Agricultural Navigator also assists in the implementation of the Dutchess County Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plan, under the guidance of the Dutchess County Agricultural Advisory Committee.
