My dream agricultural community would be a "planned subdivision of working
market farms, all built around a central/communal farmers market, CSA pickup
point, value added procession kitchen and central distribution for a
grower's network.  All close enough to a city to attract the beautiful
people to come buy...All farms would have to be geniune working farms, not
"gentleman's farms".

Imagine a strawberry farm, orchards, specialty greens growers, dairy,
poultry and goats all in one central community...
> An acquaintance wrote this morning about just such an idea that you
mention, April - instead of having houses develop around a country club or
swimming pool, have them develop around a working farm - all can benefit
from and work on the farm----it would need a manager just like a country
club would - to oversee the daily work on the farm.
