It is the policy of Columbia county and the Town of Copake to conserve, protect and encourage the development and improvement of farm operations within our borders for the production for food and other products. Existing and prospective residents of the Town of Copake should be aware of the inherent potential conditions associated with farm operations. Such conditions may include but are not limited to noise, odors, fumes, dust, smoke, storage and disposal of plant and animal waste products and the application of fertilizers, soil amendments and pesticides by ground or aerial spraying or other method. Property owners and residents within the Town of Copake should be aware that farmers have the right to undertake generally accepted agricultural practices, and one should expect such conditions as a normal and necessary aspect of living in such an area.
