We are sorry to have to announce that the board voted at its regular monthly meeting on 8/9/22 to cancel the Cooperator's Picnic this year. With the Covid-19 community level once again at high in Allegany County, the board members feel that the best course of action for the safety of our community is to cancel this event. Refunds will be mailed to cooperators who have already paid to attend. Hopefully we can return to this fun activity in 2023.

Do you need a permit?
The Maryland Department of Agriculture has revised and updated its Farmer's Guide to Environmental Permits. The Guide serves as a quick reference to help farmers, businesses and individuals comply with Maryland's environmental regulations. It includes state authorizations issued by the Maryland Departments of Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources. A commonly needed federal approval, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' 404 permit, is also included. The newly revised Farmer's Guide to Environmental Permits is available here.
