Called Farm Colony: Farmcolony is a unique community built around a working farm, offering homeowners an opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of living on a farm without the usual worries or responsibilities. For those who have long had a dream of living on a farm surrounded by clean air, open land, and nature's critters, Farmcolony is built on a model offering just that – at a price far less than buying a large working farm.
