This right-to-farm law was passed based on a finding by the Florida Legislature that agricultural activities conducted on farm land in urbanizing areas are potentially subject to lawsuits based on the theory of nuisance and that these suits encourage and even force the premature removal of the farm land from agricultural use. It is the purpose of this law to protect reasonable agricultural activities conducted on farm land from nuisance suits.
