Denver, CO August 09, 2018 –Getting back to the land is no longer an aspirational wish with the agrarian lifestyle available atFox Hill, a custom home development located in Franktown, CO.
“As parents, we can tell our children to eat carrots, but if we show them where a carrot comes from and allow them to harvest it up themselves? Well, they’re going to be that much more excited about eating a carrot,” said Elizabeth Craft of Growing Up Green, which is designing the sustainable farm that will be the centerpiece of Fox Hill. “It also allows us to teach our children the value of keeping local farmers in business.”
Elizabeth and her husband Kory have already succeeded with the concept before – in Texas, they oversaw a 70-acre stone fruit orchard that allowed families to experience the joy of picking their own produce and hosted a variety of special events, some of which will be duplicated at Fox Hill.
The Fox Hill farm will be geared towards residents who are interested in pursuing a healthy lifestyle, but who may be overwhelmed by the idea of implementing a full-scale farm themselves. Instead, the state-of-the-art aquaponic greenhouse, row gardens, fruit orchard, wildflowers, a berry-picking patch, henhouse and bee hives will be tended to by a full-time manager.The idea seems to be resonating with prospective residents – after a July 29“Hot Properties” article by Mark Samuelson about the development, people from all over Colorado journeyed to Fox Hill to tour the property and learn more about the farm. Several lot reservations are underway as a result. In addition, Fox Hill has three spec homes currently under construction for spring 2019 delivery and four more scheduled spec and model home ground breakings.
“I was expecting enthusiasm, but I was blown away by the variety of generations that this is speaking to,” said Elizabeth Craft. “Everyone from empty nesters to young families seems to find this appealing.”
