The FauquierFreeCitizen.com web site currently has a link to an interesting story involving York County and the Virginia Right to Farm Act. The story was written by Amanda Kerr on the Hampton Roads DailyPress.com web site. Gregory Connolly has also written about this story on the Williamsburg Yorktown Daily website WYDaily.com.
Here is the story. Two York County residents, Greg Garrett and Anthony Bavuso, commercially farm and harvest oysters from their rural homes. York County does not have any jurisdiction over harvesting oysters in the water. That jurisdiction belongs to the Virginia Marine Resources Commission, and both oyster farmers have obtained those permissions.
