Asheville Farms and Land- A Review
Asheville, N.C. Real Estate Journal
Offering objective fiduciary counsel to Land and Acreage buyers/sellers/1031 investors means keeping a finger on the pulse of local goings-on here in the Greater Asheville area. When it comes to sustainable innovation in Asheville, it is an on-going adventure.(see photo of horse enjoying a good graze ... and what the dog at the previous link reveals...)
Recently, we reviewed findings for clients in search of large acreages. The discoveries came from Farmland Values Project.
The Farmland Values Project involved both data collection and research, and a community interaction initiative. It asked the following questions:
- Does farmland in our area affect the quality of life of residents?
- Is farmland of great importance to residents of our area?
- Are residents concerned about the loss of farmland?
- Do residents believe more needs to be done to protect farmland in our area?
- Are both residents and visitors willing to pay to protect farmland in the region?
As land specialists, we notice, more and more, that our clients desire the implementation of wise choices in eco-friendly land use. They want a close-up view on development issues and the tenor of the situation.
The Farmland Values Project confirmed what we at the Firm suspected; that all of the above are tremendously important to Asheville area people and those relocating to the Asheville, NC area. After all, farmland provides more than great organically and/or locally-grown food easy to find at CSAs and tailgate markets throughout our region.
The information gathered from the study, and our interpretation as "local experts", could have value for our clients. Sustainable farmlands also benefit non-farmers by providing flood control, landscapes worthy of the talents of Andrew Wyeth or John Singer Sargent and a treasured spirit of interdependence and sense of place.
