Right to Farm Ordinance

El Dorado County has declared that it wishes to conserve, protect, and encourage agricultural operations within the county. However, when residential development occurs next to areas of agricultural land, agricultural operations sometimes become the subject of nuisance complaints. The County has adopted a Right to Farm Ordinance to define and limit cases in which agricultural operations may be considered a nuisance. It includes a disclosure notice to prospective property buyers that notifies them that if the property they are purchasing is in the vicinity of agricultural land, they may be subjected to certain inconveniences associated with normal agricultural operations and that special agricultural setbacks may be required on the property.
