[HISTORY: Adopted by the Special Town Meeting 1-9-2006 by Art. 12. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The right to farm is hereby recognized to exist within the Town of Southwick. The above-described farming or agricultural activities may occur on holidays, weekdays, and weekends by night or day and shall include the attendant incidental noise, odors, dust, and fumes associated with normally accepted agricultural practices. It is hereby determined that whatever impact may be caused to others through the normal practice of agriculture is more than offset by the benefits of farming to the neighborhood, community, and society in general. The benefits and protections of this bylaw are intended to apply exclusively to those commercial agricultural and farming operations and activities conducted in accordance with generally accepted agricultural practices.
If any part of this bylaw is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or invalid, such decision shall not affect the remainder of this bylaw. The Town of Southwick hereby declares the provisions of this bylaw to be severable.
