Agricultural District
Annual Additions Open Enrollment

The Onondaga County Agriculture and Farmland Protection Board announces that the next annual open enrollment period for the addition of viable agricultural lands into Onondaga County Agricultural Districts will take place January 1- 30, 2017.  Note that property can only be removed from an Agricultural District during the District's eight-year review.

Agricultural Districts are intended to encourage the continued use of farmland for agricultural production.  Enrollment of viable agricultural lands into a State certified Agricultural District provides protection of accepted agricultural practices through New York State Agricultural Districts Law.  Viable agricultural land is land highly suitable for, or currently used for, agricultural production.
