What is a farmstead property?
A farmstead property includes all buildings and structures that are used primarily for agricultural purposes (such as housing animals or storing supplies, production or machinery) on a farm of ten contiguous acres or more in size. The farmstead must be the permanent residence of at least one owner, as defined under the homestead definition. The farmstead exclusion would be applied to buildings and structures that are not already exempt from real property taxation under other laws. The requirement that an owner live on the farm means that farms owned by absentee owners will not be eligible for the farmstead exclusion.
