Small Acreage program helps property owners of less than 100
acres with technical assistance, education, and information for smaller tracts
"We often find that smaller tracts are not commercially
viable in the normal sense of the word,” stated Pat Munts, Small Acreage
Coordinator. “Small acreages are often ‘too small’ to attract larger commercial
ag operators. As a result, the landowner is left in a quandary of what to
do with the 19 acres of noxious weeds sounding the one-acre of residential
landscaping? Keep in mind that our state law requires landowners to
control noxious weeds, which can be an expensive endeavor if a commercial
applicator has to be hired."
These are just some of the challenges facing landowners in
Spokane County. Our goal of this new Small Acreage Program will be to provide
educational and technical assistance to those landowners living on less than
100 acres that wish to better utilize the potential of the land to raise
livestock, crops or both.
