Right to Farm & Country Code

Upper Freehold Township has been recognized for its commitment to Preserving Farmlands and the industry of Agriculture by adopting  a “Right to Farm” Ordinance and a “Country Code" Ordinance. Over 10,000 acres of prime farmland has been preserved in Upper Freehold Township for farms or for other open space uses. Farmland and open land are beneficial to the local tax base as livestock do not attend school or require a police department and other costly services. Even though this land is taxed at a lower value it more than pays for itself. Because the services associated with farms are so minimal, the Township has been able to benefit from the net positive impact that farm and open land contribute to the local municipal budget.
Many are attracted to this community because of the open space and the rural atmosphere. In order to perpetuate the commitment of the citizens of Upper Freehold, we ask that you support the intent of these ordinances.

Thank you for keeping Upper Freehold Township a truly rural and agricultural community.
