How do states designate what is farm land and what is not?

    There are a number of different ways for states to ensure land is being used for farming. One of the most widespread ways, particularly in New Jersey, is with farmland preservation programs. Though they may differ from state to state, they do the same thing. Owners of land being used for farming are paid money to ‘preserve’ their land, meaning it cannot be developed for houses, only agrarian uses. The owners are paid a sum equal to the supposed loss in value due to the real estate’s lost potential as housing.
