Right to Farm By-Law…what’s that all about? According to a post on Mass.gov: “The purpose and intent of the Right to Farm By-Law is to state with emphasis the right to farm accorded to all citizens of the Commonwealth under Article 97…encourages the pursuit of agriculture, promotes agriculture-based economic opportunities, and protects farmlands within a town by allowing agricultural uses and related activities to function with minimal conflict with abutters and town agencies.”
