Ashtabula Local Food Council encourages backyard chicken keeping as a vital part of backyard and local food production. The city of Ashtabula is considering an ordinance allowing chickens and other small, domesticated farm animals within city limits for 2017, and we are in support of an ordinance that would allow the majority of property owners in the city to keep poultry and other small animals.
