ABOUT THE FARM
THE FARM REPRESENTS A NEW MODEL FOR GROWTH - ONE THAT CONTAINS THE CONVENIENCES OF A MODERN TOWN WHILE PRESERVING THE BENEFITS OF A COUNTRY LIFESTYLE. BY CLUSTERING DEVELOPMENT IN THIS WAY, A FULL SPECTRUM OF HOUSING TYPES CAN BE OFFERED TO SUIT A DIVERSE VARIETY OF INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES IN ALL STAGES OF LIFE.
Our 650 acre site contains a great diversity of land features, habitats and agricultural history that, combined with its proximity to State College, makes it ideal for this unique approach to community development.
Grounded in careful analysis of the landscape and collaboration with a number of community organizations, The Farm master plan centers on community engagement and environmental stewardship. The result is meant to foster an exchange between future residents of The Farm and their neighbors locally, regionally, and globally.
RESIDENTS OF THE FARM WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE GREENMOORE GARDENS CSA AT WHATEVER LEVEL THEY DESIRE.
FROM BACKYARD GARDENS TO CHICKENS AND GOATS, ALL WHO WISH TO WILL ENJOY THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY A PART IN PROVIDING THE BASIC NECESSITIES OF THE COMMUNITY.
For those who seek a tight-knit, walkable community, smaller lots provide that human-scale, urban core experience.
For families desiring more private space for gardening and children's backyard romps, more sizable lots are available.
And for those individuals looking for a classic country viewshed and a piece of land where they can plant orchards and crops, or even raise some livestock, a number of estate-sized parcels are also integrated into the community plan.
THE DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR THE FARM SEEK TO CELEBRATE THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF PENNSYLVANIA WHILE UTILIZING MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND AN ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN ETHIC.
