Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?
Are you willing to have the public on the property for a CSA, farm market or related agricultural activity?
Other potential constraints on agricultural activities (property constraints, concerns from neighbors, etc.)
My goal over the last ten years has been to improve the soil quality through grazing management with no chemicals used of any kind. Organic options can be considered.
