Williamsburg is a Right-to-Farm Community
The Right-to-Farm Bylaw promotes agriculture, educates citizens about agriculture and encourages its acceptance in our community. Agriculture is a vital part of Williamsburg, past and present. The Town of Williamsburg is committed to do what it can to ensure the continuation of agriculture, despite our rapid residential development. Agriculture is important to our town for the local production of food and forest products and a source of local employment, and for environmental values that agricultural land provides, such as clean air, scenic beauty and open space.

The Agricultural Commission has posted two signs that tell visitors and residents alike that Williamsburg is a Right-to-Farm community. These signs are posted on Rt. 9 when entering Williamsburg from Goshen and from Northampton. These signs were generously funded through donations from the Williamsburg Farmers' Market Committee, the Williamsburg Grange, and a few individuals. We thank these organizations and individuals for providing the funds to create the Williamsburg Right-to-Farm signs!
