In some cases, urban farms include livestock such as sheep and goats. Goats in particular seem to be gaining popularity as urban farm livestock. Zoning is often quite restrictive in metropolitan communities in terms of keeping livestock. Many free resources and guides specific to cattle, sheep, goats, hogs, and more can be found on the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service website on livestock. Below are other great publications and resources.
