Combine 2 leases to meet 10 acre requirement?

Asked September 15, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT

In Orange County North Carolina it is my understanding that you cannot be deemed a farm unless you have 10 acres or more. Can I combine 2 properties I lease to meet the 10 acre requirement. 1 property is 2.8 acres and the other is 250 acres. The 2.8 I am buying, but renting the big property.
