What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Agricultural-based neighborhood plants its roots in Mukwonago

The town of Mukwonago is now home to possibly the first “Agrihood” in the state of Wisconsin, a 36-acre farming- type residential community that offers a ‘life on the farm’ experience with the proximity of a tight-knit community.

‘Farm-to-table’ living comes to fruition in southeast Wisconsin

One of the state’s first agrihoods — collaborative communities around a farm setting — is making construction headway, with final plat approval slated for an Aug. 2 town planning commission meeting.

 

Mukwonago area sees substantial growth

A project under consideration in the town of Mukwonago would bring one of the first agrihoods to the area. Curt and Jodi Wiebelhaus proposed the Agape Agrihood for 36 acres of vacant farmland south of Highway NN. Residents on the 10 lots in the agrihood could enjoy farm-to-table living.

One of the state’s first agrihoods — collaborative communities around a farm setting — is making construction headway, with final plat approval slated for an Aug. 2 town planning commission meeting.

Mukwonago development could be one of first agrihoods

Curt and Jodi Wiebelhaus wanted to purchase a hobby farm for their family when Jodi found an article about the growing trend of agrihoods. With three children who enjoy working with chickens and ducks and who have been active in 4-H, the Wiebelhaus clan has always enjoyed an active, healthy lifestyle, “especially when it involves spending time outdoors with nature and animals,” Curt explained in an email.

New residential developments ahead for Mukwonago

Agrihoods is an up and coming trend. An agrihood is a collaborative community located around a farm setting where residents can connect with nature and their neighbors while also having the opportunity to enjoy farm-to-table living.
An agrihood has been proposed by Curt and Jodi Wiebelhaus for 36 acres of vacant farmland south of Highway NN, just east of Red Brae Road, in the town of Mukwonago. The name of the development would be Agape Agrihood.

Welcome to the “Agrihood”

J. Ashley, courtesy of Serenbe At the corner of New Urbanism and the local-food movement, a new type of neighborhood is rising: a tight-knit community built around an organic farm. With dozens of these communities filling up fast and hundreds more in the planning stages, “agrihoods” are one of the success stories of the postcrash housing market. An agrihood is a planned development combining clustered houses and broad natural landscapes with farm-to-table living.

How Agrihoods Are Making Farm-To-Table Living Hip”

If you’ve ever tasted an heirloom tomato still warm from the vine or an omelet made from just-laid eggs, then you know just how good fresh can be. Now imagine living in a neighborhood where access to farm-raised produce is just steps away from your front door.

Who says you can’t have your organic rutabaga and eat it, too?
