Wayne County is accepting landowner applications for including new parcels of viable agricultural land in the existing certified agricultural district until Jan. 31.
The state Agriculture and Markets Law allows land that is “predominately viable agricultural land” to be added to the Wayne County Agricultural District before the next scheduled review, which is in 2024.
State-certified agricultural districts offer benefits to people with land that is used for farming. Agricultural districts are not related to municipal zoning.
Enrollment applications will require the farm business name, property address, tax parcel identification number and general farm production information. Maps showing which properties are in the current agricultural district and applications are available online.
