A sign to identify your farm as a Burke County Voluntary Agricultural District will be available. These signs will tell passersby that you, the farm owner, are committed to the preservation of the agricultural way of life in Burke County.
Increased Protection from Nuisance Suits
Persons buying land in rural areas will do so with the knowledge that a bona fide agricultural operation exists within one aerial mile. Agricultural Districts will be identified on County maps, which shall be displayed for public view in County offices including offices of the Planning Department and Register of Deeds.
