Wake County Voluntary Agricultural District

The Wake Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors has created a Voluntary Agricultural District Program (VAD) in Wake County.  The purpose of this programs is to:

1) Increase the visibility of farm communities in the county; 2) Focus more attention on the importance of these communities to the county; 3) Work with the county to make it easier for those who wish to stay in farming to continue doing so; 4) Advise the county on issues affecting agriculture; 5) Give farm owners a greater voice in local government decisions affecting their community; 6) Reduce conflicts between farm and non-farm land uses.
