Commission could remove protections for residential farmers

LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Michigan Commission on Agriculture is considering whether to remove protections for farmers with animals in residential areas.

The commission will review potential changes to the state's Right to Farm Law during a special meeting in Lansing Monday.

The proposed change would remove legal protections for farmers if they are in residential zoning, regardless of the number of animals they own.

The change would also let local leaders authorize farm animals in those areas.
