    Amends GS 160A-360(k) providing an exemption for property located in the corporate limits of a municipality that is used for bona fide farm purposes. Such property is exempt from exercise of the municipality's powers under this Article, unless the exercise of zoning power is required by a compelling public safety, health or environmental protection interest.

    Amends GS 153A-340 clarifying that small-scale retail operations at the bona fide farm with a primary function of selling products grown or produced on the farm are included in the category of "all other forms of agriculture" for the purpose of defining the scope of "bona fide farm purposes."
