New legislation in California would require that homebuyers who move next to farms be informed that agriculture can be noisy, smelly, dusty ― and that farmers have a right to farm. The bill would require developers to inform potential buyers about California’s right-to-farm law whenever property changes hands.

The goal of the law is to prevent complaints and nuisance lawsuits from people moving into the countryside.
