From the very beginning, we set out to do things differently here at Harvest. We carefully crafted a vibrant, welcoming community from farm land that nurtured and grew generations of one family. To respect and honor that history, we stayed true to their agrarian roots, and developed one of the first “agrihoods” in the country. We invite you to explore this one-of-a-kind community and can’t wait to welcome you home here!
Farming and Gardening Are The Heart of Harvest
At the heart of our community is a working commercial farm, operated by a professional farmer who shares his expertise with homeowners, our kids, and their parents. And with private garden plots and community demonstration gardens to help “brown thumbs” go green, Harvest neighbors have countless opportunities to roll up their sleeves and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while meeting new friends, learning new things, and growing fresh produce.
One Family’s Farming Legacy
In 1877, Tennessee native John Wesley Faught and his wife, Etta, arrived in Fort Worth by train and traveled the remaining miles to Denton County by wagon to put down roots and live off the land. Using nearly every cent they had, the Faughts paid cash for their first land purchase at a rate of $6 an acre. With the pocket change that remained, the Faughts began their life together as a farming family — raising crops, and ultimately, five generations of North Texans.
Around the turn of the 20th century, John Wesley built the two-story farmhouse that still stands as a tribute to the grit and passion of a family that worked the land for more than a century. Today, the Faught House serves as a coffee shop for friends and neighbors to gather. We are grateful and humbled to carry on the Faught legacy of farming and family.
The Soul of Our Community
The family farming heritage that inspired Harvest continues to shape a new kind of agrarian culture — one that values farm-to-table produce, modern country living, community connection, and homegrown friendships.
