The Northborough Patch is reporting that despite an appeal filed by Santo Anza, Jr., who owns SA Farm, the Zoning Board of Appeals has voted to upheld a cease and desist order issued to stop composting activity. The composting, and the odors, have been going on since Mr. Anza bought the property two years ago. Neighbors have been complaining of odors, and complained that the activity at the property is a compost business that is masquerading as a “farm,” allowing Anza to operate under rules and bylaws pertaining to agriculture, and not under rules pertaining to the handling of waste.
