How do I qualify for Green Acres?
If you own agricultural property and that property is devoted to the “production for sale of agricultural products”, you may be eligible for the Green Acres Program. The property must be used primarily for agricultural use/purposes. IF the property is primarily agricultural use, the following must also be met:
  • The property must have at least 10 acres that are used agriculturally. There are some exceptions for certain intense uses such as nursery stock.
  • The property must be homestead, farmed in conjunction with the homestead property; or the property must have been in the applicant’s family for at least seven years.
Green Acres applications are made to, and approved by, the County Assessor. Proper documentation to verify agricultural income must be submitted with the application.
