Imagine a housing development built around green space. But instead of a golf course or park, a farm is at the community’s centerpiece. This concept is becoming reality in Durham, North Carolina.
The feature amenity of Wetrock Farm, with 141 home sites, will be a 15-acre sustainable farm managed by professionals.
Organic fruits and vegetables will be grown at the farm, which will host a farm stand and space for educational and recreational programs.
Residents will enjoy access to the locally-grown produce, and will be able to participate in the growing of food as much as they desire.
Developer Rick Bagel also hopes to attain organic certification for the farm.
