What Does Agricultural Law Cover?
Agricultural law applies to businesses that deal with things we typically associate with farming, including:
- Livestock and livestock products
- Planting, growing and harvesting crops and timber
- The cultivation or raising of any plant or animal in fresh or saltwater, i.e. cranberries or goldfish for sale to pet shops
Arkansas farmers enjoy government-sponsored protections as a result of the “right-to-farm” law put in effect in 1981. This law’s intent was to protect agricultural business owners from suffering unnecessary nuisance claims and the pressures of urbanization. For example, farms may be exempt from nuisance claims from neighbors who complain about noises or smells emitted by your operation.
