    There aren't really any restrictions on what TIME a farmer begins work.  The only ones may be for spraying pesticides or vegetation killing sprays. Call your zoning board and ask if there are.

    Any time they want.  It's a noise issue, not a can they work issue.

    No restrictions in the U.K., their land was farmed long before your house was built.

    Its unlikely there are any restrictions on this in most places.  They were, after all, there first, probably long before the residential properties were built.

    It will depend on local ordinances and how the area is classified.  I live in a rural area and it is zoned as 'residential/agricultural'  any noise or smells from animals or equipment is permitted with no time restrictions.  They can plow as soon as there is daylight and bale hay at midnight

    The world doesn't have the same laws...however in many places city/town noise levels laws often don't apply to countryside with regards to farm machinery

    At certain times of the year farmers don't stop work, so planting/harvest the machinery will be in operation 24/7 with just a change of driver..... if residential property has been built  'city dwellers' purchase them as they are ignorant to the reality of rural life they need to get over themselves and their misunderstanding that  noise laws in built up cities/town is very different to NORMAL rural work

    In most jurisdictions, the farmers have a grandfather exemption for a lot of things including their hours of operations.

    Local laws, regulations, and even common courtesies would apply.  Believe it or not, there is not global law on this (or even country or state.)

    I will say that it's likely the farmer was there first and someone decided to build residential and move in.  In that situation, the farmer should be free to continue his life how he always has.
