The RTFA protects COMMERCIAL, lawfully established or legally nonconforming farm operations against public or private nuisance complaints brought against it, provided it meets GAAMPS (Generally Accepted Ag Management Practices). For example, if a farmer puts manure down on his field, the neighborhood that was built next door does not have the right to file suit.
The RTFA does NOT protect you from starting a pig farm on your property if the zoning does not permit. So no, it does also not always exempt local regs.
