Yes farm deferral can save you alot in property taxes but it can also keep you from building on the property. Which is why you've probably posted this question.
If the acreage property has been re-zoned over the last 10 years by the state. Then their real strict about "lot of record dwellings" on the property.
I know of several pieces of vacant land that I've researched where they have been re-zoned for "exclusive farm use" and there can only be one lot of record dwelling on the property. You'll see this where the state is trying to protect the farmland from being built on. If you find some vacant land that had a home on it at one time then your at the counties mercy for being able to build on the property. If you can prove that there was a home on the property in the past then they will usually provide you a permit to build.
You just have to know what your looking for and I'm sure you'll be able to find an opportunity.
All the best!
