Everything You Need to Know About Agricultural Acreage and More!

Do you work with agricultural lands? - A virtual workshop for realtors

Are you a realtor working in a rural area? This presentation will provide you with resources to help evaluate farms and vacant land that you may be listing. Our presenter is Jennifer Fimbel, a Senior Resource Educator for Agriculture with Duchess County Cornell Cooperative Extension Educator. She has extensive experience working with realtors to help them assess and effectively market farmland as well as understanding the needs of clients hoping to purchase farmland.
Topics to be discussed:
  • Which properties are eligible for farm “exemptions”
  • What are the differences between agricultural districts and agricultural zoning
  • Why knowing about local zoning is important
  • Matching suitable properties for prospective buyers
  • Section 310 of Article 25 AA NYS Agricultural Districts Law concerning disclosure
  • Mapping resource tools available and how to better utilize them
  • Community agriculture profiles
  • What is a conservation easement and how it affects the property
