12 Agrihoods Taking Farm-to-table Living Mainstream

agrihoodsCalled ‘agrihoods,‘ this new type of neighborhood serves up farm-to-table living in a cooperative environment. Instead of being built around a pool, tennis court or golf course, these housing developments are centered around a farm, often using the sweat-equity of residents to create a sustainable food system for the entire community.

Of course, community gardens, urban agriculture, and cohousing communities are nothing new. But as the rapidly growing crop of agrihoods demonstrates, families are eager to reimagine these collaborative efforts in a new setting–often at the same or lower prices than a traditional suburban neighborhood.
