In 2004, Florida Farm Bureau worked with the Florida Department of Transportation to design a handbook outlining transportation rules and regulations as they apply to agriculture. Since that time many changes have taken place in the law and we decided to update this useful tool.
In October 2008 the Florida Farm Bureau Federation along with 23 partners received a 2008 USDA grant to determine the viability of anaerobic digesters in Florida, specifically for use on dairy farms. See below for more information.
Q: What is Greenbelt?
A: It is not a tax “exemption.” Under the Greenbelt Law, FS 193.461 (3) (b), properties that are bona fide agricultural operations are taxed according to the “use” value of those operations, rather than the development value. Generally, tax assessments for qualifying land are lower than those for other uses. But ... all owners of such property do pay taxes.
