DMAP enrollment question

We are planning on enrolling the family farm in dmap next year. Main farm is 56 acres with about 48-50 being ag use. My question is there is another property or 30 acres all ag used that we also own, about 1/4 mile away be road. Can’t this property be used in the same dmap or would it need to be separate. I also have another 10 acre property another 1/3 mile down the road that is about 7 acres ag use I would add in if possible. Anybody ever run into a case like this?

I would dmap it seperate so you can each get two tags for each property.

No, you can't DMAP the separate parcels together. I have parcels that are contiguous, yet deeded separately (different parcel numbers). I was told they had to be treated as separate. So, If you have say 4 parcels of 10, 30, 25, 35 acres, contiguous or not, you can't add them all up to account for 100 acres on the same DMAP application.

ADDING: Your acreage requirements technically only allow for 1 DMAP Coupon. The 50 acre Ag. And they do allow for "Forested" land to be DMAPPED (might be 25 acre min ?) BUT, they also will take into account deer damage on parcels that may not meet the minimum acreage requirement. So, on your 56 acre Ag land, you can request additional Coupons, BUT you have to be fairly detailed on property lines (submit a map), and you have to be somewhat convincing on why you actually need more coupons than they allocate per the minimum acreage.


I actually had a regional biologist call me, and request that I make my crudely drawn boundary map more definitive. Really surprised they got that granular, but they do.

If I recall correctly they would have to be separate DMAP applications. You can have 1 coupon issued for every 5 acres of agricultural land. Like dce stated if you did this as one dmap then you can personally only get 2 tags if you do the 56 acre and 30 acre separately then you can have 2 to each or a total of 4 and then give the coupons for the rest of tags to other family members / friends. You could even do the 10 acres but it will only get you 1 tag since 7 acres are in ag.

I just enrolled our property this year. They are two separate parcels but are contiguous. I own one and my BIL owns others. I was able to dmap them as one unit. However, since yours are not contiguous, they would need to be dmap'd separately.
