Just curious if anyone here has or is looking into this, looks like fairly inexpensive land and the rules seem somewhat lax.

Think it would be possible to skirt the "breaking ground" portion by planting evans cherries, raspberries, strawberries, etc... Around (surround it, commencing food forrest) the required acreages by 4th year?

That article dates from 1970, are you sure it still is valid?

I think you're correct. I thought the legislation was last revised in 1970... But I have been unable to find any more recent info.
