I posted this on BackYardHerds, but thought I would try here as well. Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but looking for some opinions. We bought our new place this spring, five acres in a Right-to-Farm community, eastern New York. After two months we got our first four chickens. Within another month, that has grown into nine, funny how that goes. My wife would really like to get a couple of goats next spring, really sooner but I am not up to building a goat barn in the winter . The problem is we are not sure if we can legally have them. I have not contacted our town yet. This is how the zoning code reads: N. AGRICULTURE. 1. The growing of field and garden crops, vineyards, orchards and nurseries; the keeping of livestock on a lot of ten (10) acres or more; and the keeping of fowl on a lot of five (5) acres or more shall be permitted as allowed by the Schedule of Use Regulations provided: I guess our question is, does this mean commercial farming or just plain old no livestock, goats, period unless you have five acres? The part that makes up question is the growing of field and garden crops. Are they saying I can not have a garden if I don't live on ten acres? Just does not seem right to us that we could not have two or three goats on five acres. Thank you for any input!!
