Bergen County Agriculture Development Board
The Division oversees the preservation of Bergen County's farmland by administering the Farmland Preservation Program to purchase development easements on farmland from landowners. It also administers the Right to Farm Protection Program which provides commercial farm owners or operators with certain protection from restrictive municipal ordinances and public and private nuisance actions. The State Agriculture Development Committee (SADC) is an important partner in the County’s farmland preservation and right-to-farm efforts.

Assisting the Division is the County Agriculture Development Board (CADB), which consists of seven voting members - four farmer and three public members. There are also three ex-officio members.

Agriculture Development Board Meetings and Agendas

Both farmers and non-farmers can contact the Division for information concerning the Farmland Preservation and the Right to Farm Programs by contacting Robert Abbatomarco at 201-336-6442.
