I confess that this is a new term to me.    Most often you hear about neighborhoods occupying former farm land complaining vociferously about animal and earth smells and equipment noises.   This  is a case  of people deliberately building homes around small working farms in order to secure the freshest,  healthiest food.

Real estate developers play a large part in this trend,  because it’s a selling point,  and property next to a farm is a lot cheaper than that beside a golf course.   Of particular interest to many buyers,  and to me because I grew up on a working farm,  is the sense of community which the arrangement engenders.   Note to progressives:  Neighborhoods function a lot better when they aren’t at the mercy of dope dealers and gangs…
