The purposes of the AG agricultural zone are to preserve and protect irreplaceable and limited supplies of farmland well suited to agricultural uses by their location, geological formation and chemical and organic composition, and to encourage environmentally sound agricultural production. These purposes are accomplished by:

A. Establishing a 35-acre minimum lot size to retain parcels sized for efficient farming;

B. Allowing for uses related to agricultural production and limiting nonagricultural uses to those compatible with farming, or requiring close proximity for the support of agriculture; and

C. Allowing for residential development primarily to house farm owners, on-site agricultural employees and their respective families.
