What is the difference between an agricultural district and an agricultural easement?
A district is a commitment by the landowner not to develop their land for a minimum of 5 years and allows for a property owner to be qualified for $50 per acre, up to 50%, whichever is less, from County Real Property Taxes. Following purchase of development rights from the land owner by the state or the county, the farm is subject to an easement which prohibits development in the future.
