We have a 42 acre farm that we raise horses on. we grow our own hay and oats. The assesor told me

the assesor told me that we are not considered a farm(?) because we raise horses?  What is the definition of a "farm" in wisconsin.  Do i have to go out a buy a cow?

In NY state,   If you have over 7 acres than you have to have 10,000 gross sales for an assessment.   You can also rent the land to a farmer with over 10k sale and have it assessed ag.   Look at the site below for wi and talk with your local assessor.

Do an internet search for your statutes, in Oklahoma it depends on how many acres the site is in order to get a farm tax id.  At least 10 acres are needed.

I assume that he considers it a "hobby farm"?  The terms "in the production of agricultural goods" or "for consumption" are usually used to define whether a property is ag or not.  You could grow trees (tree farm), bees, flowers.  You could have a horse farm, but I'm thinking that you don't.

All of this comes down to your "Use Value"  for tax purposes.  How many acres do you have?  He should still categorize most as ag.
