    THE “GREEN ACRES” PROGRAM In 1967 the Minnesota Legislature created the Minnesota Agricultural Property Tax Law, most commonly known as the “Green Acres” Program. The law lowers taxable values on certain farmland that were experiencing escalating values due to potential development pressure. In 2008 the Minnesota Legislature made significant changes to the program. For the 2009 assessment only land that is classified as 2a productive land will qualify for Green Acres. Minnesota Statute 273.13, subdivision 23 defines class 2a property as productive agricultural land used for the production for sale of agricultural products. This means that the land must be actively tilled, pastured or mowed for hay in order to qualify as 2a productive agricultural land. Class 2b non-productive land will not be eligible for green acres. Examples of 2b land are woods, waste, wetlands, slough or un-used pasture. Simply having a fenced pasture is not enough to be considered class 2a productive land. To be classed as 2a, there must be evidence of production of an agricultural product for sale.
