    We have a home zoned agricultural and I have been raising chickens for a hobby, I wondered about making my home a farm and taking advantage of any tax benefits and grants available. Is anyone familiar with this?

    You have to contact the county offices for the terms.

    I think some of it has to do with how much of your income comes from the operation. Since 100% of our income is from our farm I've never really had to look into it.

    it is diffrent from state to the other and it has to do with how many acers you have,like here in KY you have to have at list min of 10 acers and then you have to put live stock on it like cows,I don't know about chicken, but I am goingto ask.
    So best thing to do ask your neighbours and friend and check with your local clerck office.
