A. The farm owner shall apply to the Foundation to request the desired modifications to the approved ARES.

B. Foundation staff shall review the proposed modifications to the approved ARES and may either approve or deny the proposed modifications administratively. Foundation staff may recommend that the Foundation Board of Trustees consider and decide upon any proposed modification to an approved ARES.
