Urban Farmed Animal Resources

While we could not host the Urban Livestock Expo in person this year, we celebrated Earth Day with a series of virtual tours featuring Chicago livestock growers and their farms.

If you or someone you know is looking to be part of the movement towards sustainable urban livestock, this event is a great way to get informed. Check out the videos below for best practices for raising different types of urban livestock in Chicago – including bees, chickens, and goats – with experts from local farms.

Experts include Fermin Meza of Little Village Environmental Justice Organization; Carolyn Ioder of GlennArt Farm; Jim Lichon of Chicago Farm Lab; and Oscar Villa of Bee-Utiful Honey & Candles.
