I am not a farmer, should I be in an agricultural district?

The Agricultural District program is a voluntary program designed to protect farming operations within an agricultural district from the enactment and administration of unreasonably restrictive local regulations unless it can be shown that public health or safety is threatened. The decision is up to you. If you have land that is used for a farming operation, the farmer operating on your property could benefit from having your property remain in the District. For property not part of a farming operation, there is no direct benefit to being in the Agriculture District, but does show support for farms.
