Enforcement & Compliance

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets has developed a comprehensive approach to the regulation of farms in the State in order to best protect water resources. The development of a three-tiered approach to regulating Vermont farms allows for a logical progression in regulatory oversight as a farm grows in size from a small farm subject to regulation under the Required Agricultural Practices (RAPs) Regulations, to a Medium Farm Operation (MFO) regulated under the state's MFO General Permit, to a Large Farm Operation (LFO) regulated under a LFO Individual Permit.
