The Zoning Board of Appeals has ordered  Sweet Meadow Farm  in Sherborn, Massachusetts, USA, to cease its petfood operation after it was found to be illegal, according to The MetroWest Daily News .

After an inspection by the town zoning enforcement officer, the board ruled unanimously that the farm's petfood operation was illegal because the farm brought in products from elsewhere which were packaged and processed on the farm and shipped out.

The farm's owners are planning to appeal the ruling.
