Commercial farms may request that their County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) - or the SADC in counties where no CADB exists - determine whether their specific operation or practices constitute generally accepted agricultural management practices.

The farm's operation or practices will be entitled to Right to Farm Act protection if the CADB or SADC determines that the farm meets the Act’s eligibility criteria. When a site-specific AMP request is made, the municipality in which the farm is located is notified, and municipal input is considered when requests involve potential preemption of municipal regulations. The municipality and property owners within 200' of the farm are also notified of the site-specific AMP hearing held by the CADB or SADC.

A formal site-specific AMP process has been established by the Right to Farm Program in its program rules, N.J.A.C. 2-76-2.3 and 2.4. For more information about the site-specific AMP process, contact your CADB or the SADC at (609) 984-2504.
