The State of North Carolina passed the Farmland Preservation Enabling Act in 1985, authorizing counties to establish farmland preservation programs, including agricultural districts. Randolph County Commissioners adopted a Voluntary Agricultural District Program Ordinance, creating the Agricultural Advisory Board and procedures for establishing Voluntary Agricultural Districts.
The Agricultural Advisory Board is composed of a number of county residents, which includes farmers representing newly-formed Agricultural Districts. Board members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. The Agricultural Advisory Board reviews and approves applications to the Voluntary Agricultural District program. They also advise the Board of County Commissioners on projects, programs, or issues affecting the agricultural economy or way of life within the county.
