Celebrating the Heritage of the Land

Built around a working commercial farm, Harvest seeks to integrate the agrarian roots and Faught familyhistory into a master planned community forover 3000eventualresidents. The master planfinds itsform in the gridded rows of summer wheat,formerly grown over thesite’s1200 acres. The historicFaught family farmhouse serves as the front door for residents and visitors justas it always has from thelate 1800s.

Fostering Community

The heart of the community can be found inthe farm, gardens, and parks thatcreate the framework forlife’s stories to unfold. Throughout the year over 900 programmed events take place in these spaces atHarvest from the morningboot campor cup of coffee to thefarm to tablecommunity dinner or“divein” movie at the pool. A careful balance of location, flexibility and scale have been considered in eachspace to offer the greatest value to the end user.
