In the county and state programs, a landowner needs at least 50 acres.
A landowner will receive payment for selling their development rights and/or a tax credit.
A district is a commitment by the landowner not to develop their land for a minimum of five years and allows for a property owner to be qualified for $50 per acre, up to 50%, whichever is less, off of county real property taxes. Following purchase of development rights from the landowner by the state or the county, the farm is subject to an easement which prohibits development in the future.
