The right to farm: hog-tied and nuisance-bound
Right to farm (RTF) laws exist in all 50 states, but should be revised to meet the needs of the 21st century. RTF laws protects the use of land for agricultural purposes, but they may conflict with more legitimate allocation of land. RTF laws may violate the rights of others and help degrade the lands they are meant to protect. Developers and commercial farmers are often in conflict with family farmers and home owners. RTF laws should not be expanded, but narrowed to meet the needs of specific circumstances.
