We were pleased to be featured in an excellent article on Marketwatch: “Why farmland may become a more popular neighborhood amenity than a golf course”. The article, which highlights the recent popularity of agrihoods like Serosun Farms, discusses why new home buyers are choosing to move to agrihoods, where they can find farm-fresh food, land, and incredible views.
The article sites several reasons people are drawn to live in agrihoods: Open spaces, locally grown food, authentic community, reconnecting with nature.
We loved this quote from our very own John DeWald, “Developers are seeing that a farm or a garden may be a better amenity than a golf course.”
Future homeowner at Serosun Amy Fahey was also interviewed in the article. We love this imagery of her dreams for life at Serosun:
“But Fahey and others gaze upon the land and imagine its potential, savoring the sunsets as well as the early produce. She’ll probably still grow something at her new home, ‘since there’s nothing like walking out the back door to get fresh basil to throw into pasta sauce,’ Fahey said.
But any garden she creates ‘won’t ever be able to compete with the masterpiece that Jane and John are creating,’ she said of the farm that the community will grow to share.”
