Resource Links to Articles on Agrihoods
Agrihoods are being discussed in newspapers, magazines, television and online. Realtors are seeing a trend in marketing the Agrihood to many millennials, baby boomers, and retirees who are seeking out neighborhoods that have more direct relationship to the land and to local food.
Agrihoods have spread rapidly in the past decade, and the number of new developments is accelerating. The combination of reduced developer costs and increased demand from prospective homeowners seeking a residential setting more in touch with nature has made this new agricultural sub-division design increasingly desirable. Agrihoods can be especially beneficial to communities if they are developed on brownfields or other abandoned and disturbed lands, and can help communities suffering from insufficient housing, if the Agrihoods include lower and moderate income housing. While the seemingly sudden appearance of Agrihoods over the past decade across the country may seem to be just the latest development trend, it may in fact represent a revolutionary and permanent change in new home subdivision design.
Here is a current list of online articles from CBS News, Forbes, Business Insider, LA Times, Architectural Digest, Huffington Post, and Realtor Magazine to name a few:
