The most coveted amenity these communities have to offer is a working farm.
Millennials are moving into agrihoods, neighborhoods built around a working farm with modern luxuries, where you can grow your own Swiss chard and eat it in a salad by an infinity pool too.
“I hated gardening and farming before I came to this community,” Marissa Alverson, 24, tells Moneyish of moving in with her mother at Rancho Mission Viejo, an active 23,000 acre ranch and farm in Orange County California, this year.
“我以前一直很讨厌园艺和农业，直到我来到了这个社区，”24岁的玛丽莎·艾佛森（Marissa Alverson）告诉莫里西（Moneyish），她与她的母亲今年搬进了加利福尼亚州奥兰治县一个生机勃勃的牧场和农场， 名叫Rancho Mission Viejo，面积总计23,000英亩。
Alverson and her neighbors can live off the fruits of their own labor, if they choose, in the agrihood complete with roaming chickens and seasonally grown produce like zucchini, kale, pumpkins and squash. On days where they don’t feel like getting their hands dirty, there are hired farm hands to maintain the crops and recreational facilities like tennis courts, a coffee shop, cocktail bar and a gym boasting barre, yoga and spin classes all within walking distance of their homes.

Living in this posh suburb with access to barns, fruit trees and outdoor courtyards for gardening and community potlucks with cooking demos doesn’t come cheap. Prices for newly built homes range from $300,000 to more than $1 million. Residents must also pay $100 twice a year for farm access.
There are more than 200 agrihoods sprouting up across the country — from Texas to Georgia and in inner cities like Detroit and Southern California — promoting rural life with a few added amenities. The target demographic is young families, like millennials, who represent the largest segment of American homebuyers. They are less interested in spending money on fancy country clubs and golf courses and more inclined to invest in sustainable causes, like knowing where their food comes from. Half of Millennials live in the suburbs and only about one in four live in urban areas, according to a study from Nationwide Mortgages.
