Ever thought about giving up city life for sustainable country living? Now you can with the development of Middlebrook, the first agrihood in Iowa. Located in Cumming, a small town just 20 minutes south of Des Moines, Middlebrook promises to return its inhabitants to a more natural lifestyle in a community that puts farming, healthy living and a return to nature first. The 2021 Des Moines Show Expo will be held in Middlebrook giving you the perfect opportunity to learn more about agrihood living.
What exactly is an agrihood?
Agrihood – A single-family, multi-family or mixed-use community centered around a working farm.
Agrihoods are growing in popularity across the country as more and more city and suburban residents crave a lifestyle that allows more access to nature, homegrown foods and a tight-knit community. Agrihoods are communities built around a farm with both crops and livestock. Residents and visitors alike can shop for produce grown right in the community and even get down and dirty by feeding animals and learning more about the crops grown in their backyards.
Middlebrook is the project of Diligent Development, an Iowa-based real estate development and investment company. In an interview with the Des Moines Register, Steve Bruere, president of Diligent Development, said, “People want to buy two acres in the country to have some chickens, a dog and horse, and that’s tough to find…. [this project can give families the country feel they want without] chopping up a bunch of farms.”
The 700-home development will offer a wide range of housing options including condos and townhomes, senior living, homes for first-time buyers and high-end options. It also includes retail, gardens, trails, a central farm with a barn and events such as live music, wine tastings and farmers markets.
This year the Des Moines Home Show Expo will be held at Great Western Crossing, one of the neighborhoods in the Middlebrook development. Visitors can tour six homes from builders who are currently active in the community. This is a fun opportunity for the entire family to get an inside look at these beautiful homes and learn more about the agrihood.
