I am just curious as to whether anyone is concerned about using the Right to Farm Act in order to get around local ordinances allowing backyard chickens? After seeing it referenced time and again, I am worried that all of this use of the act will dilute it's power for the people that it was actually meant to protect: Farmers. The act was put in place to prevent nuisance lawsuits against farmers by people that move into a rural area and then complain about the noise, smell, etc. From the National Ag law website: All fifty states have enacted right-to-farm laws that seek to protect qualifying farmers and ranchers from nuisance lawsuits filed by individuals who move into a rural area where normal farming operations exist, and who later use nuisance actions to attempt to stop those ongoing operations. We need farmers in this country and they already face immense challenges to continue their, usually multi-generational, way of life. Why not just get petitions signed, talk to city councils and educate your community on raising chickens? I love having birds. I did have them illegally at first, unbeknownst to me. The city I lived in allowed 5 hens but I lived in an "unincorporated" part of the city where it was not legal. After petitions, education and talking to the county, the law was changed there too.
