The following is from the city's Land Development Code (Article 3, Section 3.4.I)

"The Agricultural Uses category is characterized by activities related to the production of field crops, fruits, vegetables, ornamental and flowering plants, and the breeding, raising, or keeping of livestock, poultry, swine, or other animals for food or other marketable products. The Agricultural Uses category also includes silvicultural activities related to the planting, management, protection, and harvesting of trees for timber or other forest products, as well as the breeding, raising, keeping, boarding, and training of horses. Accessory uses may include offices, storage areas, barns, stables, irrigation systems, and repair facilities related to the agricultural or silvicultural activities. Example use types include general farming (crop production, orchards, breeding or raising of fowl or other animals, and fish farms), silvicultural activities (the management of timber), and plant nurseries and greenhouse operations. This use category does not include the processing of animal or plant products for wholesale or retail sale purposes, which is considered an industrial manufacturing use type."
