You’ll be able to shop our farmers market, pick up farm fresh eggs, or even grow your own produce in a dedicated farm community farm plat. The Farm will grow into a community hub, linking all of the community’s neighborhoods, social activity, and things to do a around beautiful fields and mother nature. The community will be linked by road, but also convenient nature trails for walking, hiking and biking. These trails will interconnect leading you to the town center to meet your friends, to a future clubhouse and amenity center for a swim, or over to our medical campus for a quick checkup without having to leave the neighborhood, and without ever getting in a car with golf cart accessibility throughout our community.
