Our region has been discovered as a prime location for retirement, creating demand for residential land sites. This demand has resulted in more than doubling of property taxes on many farms, tempting or forcing farmers to sell off their acreage to eager developers.
Demand might lead to increased prices for certain prime properties.

The "more than doubling of property taxes" comes from government greed.

100% correct. It appears that government's solution is part of the problem.
