SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- Audrey Matson and Bob Lies are riding the wave of urban farming that's sweeping the country.
A farm girl by birth, Matson wanted to return to her roots, and thought the interest in "growing your own" could turn into a business.
Matson and her husband created that business in Saint Paul, Egg/Plant Urban Farm Supply. It helps experts and novices alike with the tools and information they need to become gardeners, canners, cheese-makers and other DIY projects.
A growing interest among their customers is raising chickens within city limits. Matson recommends you first check with your city to see if chickens are allowed within your city limits, and also what restrictions apply.
From there, Matson and Lies are prepared to help you with shelter, feed, even the chicks to make it happen.
