Fayetteville Officials Consider Urban Agriculture Measures

Posted: December 8, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Chickens at Summer Kitchen Family Farm outside Fayetteville walk near their coop Friday, July 26, 2013, at the small farm owned and operated by Mariah and Ira White. A group of local food advocates are working with city staff to establish policies to promote urban agriculture. Changes could enable residents to sell food that they grow on their property and allow more chickens, ducks and bees in residential areas.

Goats, bees and more chickens and ducks will be allowed in residential areas if changes to city code clear the Planning Commission on Monday and the City Council early next year.
