Urban chickens have been gaining popularity around the country for a while. Now that Traverse City has changed its ordinance to allow chickens in town, we are becoming part of that growing trend. Groups are forming to discuss in-town-chickens, and articles are being written about urban chicken farmers. Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by journalist Noah Fowle to do an interview on the subject for Northern Express, a fantastic weekly paper based in Traverse City! Noah came by this morning, met the girls, took some pictures, and asked me about my little farming operation. I’m not sure when the article will be published or what exactly it will say because we discussed local food, CSAs and chickens, but I’m excited to be a part of this exciting new trend. (Plus, I love my girls. 🙂 ) I’ll let you know when the article hits the newsstands.
