    Hi All. We're new to the site. We seek advice and information from those of you who are undoubtedly far more knowledgeable on this subject than us. We are currently involved in some rather nasty litigation regarding our attempt to establish a hops farm on a piece of vacant land in north oakland county. The land is zoned residential/agricultural, and farming is permitted under the ordinance. We are posting on your site because it appears the issues are the same--the local authorities believe the posts etc necessary to grow hops are a nuisance, and we are wondering how to use Michigan's Right to Farm Act to our advantage. We are wondering whether any of you have any suggestions regarding how to get a GAAMPS designation, as it appears this may afford us some protection from the constant interference we are experiencing from the authorities. Hops are unusual in these parts, and we believe that is part of the reason the we are having such difficulty.

    We look forward to reading your responses!

    There is alread a Michigan Right To Farm Law thread; I suggest you post there. BTW, read through the whole many, many pages. A lot of the information you are asking for is alread discussed.
