Berlin Farms going to the dogs

Posted by Ralph Ranalli May 5, 2008 08:33 AM

Berlin Farms, a country store and 24-acre farm that specializes in raising endangered species of farm animals, is seeking to expand its business to become a "full service animal wellness center" for dogs, according to town officials.

Berlin Farms owner Jennifer Cermak of North Reading is scheduled to appear before the Zoning Board of Appeals on Wednesday, May 21, as part of her special permit application for the new business. Town zoning allows veterinary and dog kennel facilities on agricultural land with ZBA approval.
