Posted on 05/30/2014 5:49:02 AM PDT by RightSideNews
York County oyster farmer Anthony Bavusos lawsuit against his countys special-use permit requirement will move to the York County-Poquoson Circuit Court, after the county attempted to dismiss the case.
The case revolves around the question of whether York Countys zoning ordinance, which requires those who engage in agricultural or aquaculture activities to obtain a special-use permit, is in violation of the Right to Farm Act in the Code of Virginia. The Complaint was filed on Jan. 31, 2014.
We are thankful we will now find out how the Right to Farm Act can protect local farmers like us, Bavuso said in a statement. We look forward to continuing to provide fresh local oysters to our community.

It’s unbelievable that in the America of our Founders that you need a law to approve of agriculture. Then you need a lawsuit to fight a zoning ordinance designed to shut out agriculture.
We know that the smooth talkers will eventually find a way to prevent your growing tomatoes in your back yard inside corporation limits.
No they won't. I'll simply break any stupid law like that. I will not comply.
You won’t, and I won’t, but the sheeple will. It’ll be wrapped in some nice package like “for the children’s safety to have only approved and inspected products”, and the sheeple will follow right along.
There was a news lady last week talking about Michelle Obama signing legislation. If the news people are that dumb, how far behind are the sheeple?
