We're entering the "Zoning Zone"  Never had much to worry about.  We're zoned Ag and we're truly Ag.  Pretty much anything goes within reason and much is protected under Michigan's Right to Farm Act.  We're looking into a new venture, have approval at the township level, which is very much ag but it's kind of not.  The State law says this kind of operation is only permitted in Industrial or Agriculture Zoned Areas and expressly forbidden in Residential Areas.  Now the County is trying to say that much Ag land is really Residential because people actually reside on their Ag Zoned property ::).  It's far from over ;) ;D

Get your farmers support groups behind you!  Lots of good pro bono lawyers handling this sort of work too.  Don't let up, also look to some of the farm preservation/conservationist groups, work both sides.  The only people pushing that sort of idea are developers that want farmland and don't want farm activity disturbing the suburban folks.
