Understanding your responsibilities

It’s important to understand your responsibilities when running any type of farm. Although these do require an ongoing commitment and expense, they can also create areas of expertise that make a regional lifestyle all the more rewarding.

This might include things such as agriculture processing, animal husbandry, harvesting operations, access to unsealed roads and waste disposal.

Property owners whose livelihood is reliant on the ‘health’ of their land do take their responsibilities seriously. For lifestyle farmers and weekenders, this doesn’t mean constant ‘red tape’, but an ongoing awareness of how your activities on the land may affect surrounding properties.
