Agricultural Property

All agricultural lands in the state including cropland, pastureland, and timberland are given special classification by the state constitution (Amendment 59). Such land is to be valued based on its use. It is not based on its market value. This use valuation, as it is called, is designed to protect and preserve such land. The state in rendering this classification recognizes the importance of crops and farming, the production of livestock, and a managed forest for the betterment of all the people of the state.
