Can I Build A Home If A Lot Is Zoned For Agriculture?


Agricultural zoning typically designates land for agricultural purposes, such as farming, ranching, or forestry. The main goal of agricultural zoning is to protect and preserve agricultural activities in specific areas and limit urban development in those regions.   That said, counties now outline specifically what can and can’t be done within this zoning so don’t let the term “Agricultural Zoning” or AR1 Zoning, scare you off! We do list all zoning info from the county in all of our ads, so you know what the land can be used for right up front. 


Whether or not you can build a single-family home on land zoned for agriculture depends on the specific regulations and restrictions set by the local government or planning authority. In many cases, building a single-family home on land zoned for agriculture may be allowed, or it might be subject to certain conditions and requirements.


To find out the specific rules and regulations related to agricultural zoning in your area, we encourage you to contact the local zoning or planning department directly as well. They can provide you with detailed information about what types of development are allowed and what requirements you need to meet to build a single-family home on agricultural-zoned land, and what else you can do with the land as well. There’s typically a variety of uses.
