Why Opponents Appealed Ashland Hog/Chicken Farm

Mar 4, 2019

The land designation is Exclusive Farm Use, but there's still some room for argument about what KINDS of farm uses are appropriate.  That's at the center of a debate over Uproot Meats, south of Ashland.

Members Denise Krause and Williams Phillips, neighbors of Uproot, visit to explain their concerns.
