Can I keep chickens in city limits of Greenville, SC? - Page 6

post #51 of 55
This is great! I am a medical student researching places to do my residency training, and now that I have four hens that I love dearly, I have to select locations where they are welcome! Props to Greenville SC for allowing backyard chickens. They make such great pets and keep themselves so clean and tidy. I have had no complaints from neighbors as long as I've had them.

Is there an upstate sc forum on here somewhere?

My husband and I are looking at creating a modern day "feed and seed" near downtown geared for our urban/suburban gardeners. We both have landscape architecture backgrounds and feel that urban agriculture, including chickens, is an underserved area. I would love any thoughts/ideas, etc. Really hoping I get we can get this idea off the ground and a reality!

I've thought about this so many times since we moved here 3 years ago.  We are off Augusta and have to venture out to Tractor Supply every time we need pine shavings/supplies.  Where are you thinking?  Would love to support a local business.  I think there used to be a "Feed and Seed" near downtown on Laurens Rd.  At least there's an empty building there that looks like it was once!  I haven't lived here long enough to know for sure.  Keep us updated on your plans!  Recently, several people have talked to me in our area that are in the process of getting coops/chickens.  It's certainly catching on and growing!

There did use to be a feed store somewhere downtown, but it was more of the traditional model I think. For that area, you would want to market it as a "boutique" style urban homesteading store. Connect with Carolina Honey Bee Company or Sky Top Orchard and see if you can sell their honeys and other goods. Consider a consignment farmers market model so people who have extra can have a year round outlet for small quantities of things like eggs and produce without the overhead or work of the traditional farmers market. Set out some upcycled tables from cables spools or other farm items and serve some Leopard Forest coffee and muffins or something and you could have a swanky little shop!
