Many so-called agrihoods — short for "agricultural neighborhoods" — are cropping up around the US, and they're aimed at farm-to-table-loving millennials.
Loosely defined by the Urban Land Institute as master-planned housing communities with working farms as their focus, agrihoods have ample green space, barns, and outdoor community kitchens. Some boast greenhouses and rows and rows of fruit trees. The homes are typically built to high environmental standards — think solar panels and composting.
Agrihoods are designed to appeal to young, active families who love to eat healthy and spend time outdoors — and they're not off the grid.
All residents have access to communal farms with orchards and workshop space, raised planters, in-ground crops, fruit trees, and a laundry list of seasonal community events. But newly built homes there aren't cheap, ranging from the low $400,000s to more than $1 million.
