5 Reasons to Love Living in Harvest, Argyle: DFW's First Agrihood
The Harvest community offers its residents a one-of-a-kind living experience. This active and spirited neighborhood in the town of Argyle is created from farmland and values modern country living, community connection, and rural culture in Denton County. Harvest residents enjoy a small-town feel while living just outside the big city and only have a short drive to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Here are additional reasons to love the Harvest master-planned community.
Harvest Is The First Argihood In DFW
With respect and honor for the roots of the original farm, Harvest was created to become DFW’s first agrihood. For those wondering what an agrihood is, the word combines “agriculture” and “neighborhood.” Agrihoods are planned communities integrating residential neighborhoods centered around community farming.
A professional farmer operates Harvest's on-site farm, growing produce to sell at local restaurants, hotels, and farmers' markets. Additionally, private gardening plots are available to residents through the HOA office. If you aren’t a gardening expert just yet, don’t worry—Harvest's farmer is always willing to lend a helping hand.
Harvest's resident farmer also offers special on-site gardening classes to residents during each planting season. Residents can grow their knowledge about plants, insects in the garden, and even how to make farm-fresh salsa.
Amenities You Don't Want to Miss
One reason why people love living in master-planned communities is they often have access to unique amenities. If you’re looking for a neighborhood with a down-home country feel and many noteworthy features, then Harvest is for you!
The community’s main park, Central Park, is the perfect place to enjoy a nice walk, play with your kids, or complete a solid workout. The 1.5-mile green space also houses The Red Barn, which features flexible seating, outdoor fire pits, yard games, and half-court basketball. Residents can also utilize the fantastic trails, greenways, and parks throughout the community, including the dog park or Harvest Fun Fields.
Those who prefer more intensive workouts will appreciate The Fit Barn. This indoor/outdoor facility features an equipment room, a fitness lawn, and volleyball and basketball courts.
What’s better than an outdoor area for music and good times with friends? How about two? The Front Porch and the Event Lawn are the ideal places to listen to live music and do the Texas two-step.
Harvest also has two pool areas, The Splash and The Splash II, for cooling off in style. Whether you are looking to relax in a poolside cabana or take the kids to splash in the baby pool, the pools at Harvest have something for everyone.
If cool water makes you think of fishing in your favorite lake, Harvest also has an 11-acre artificial lake containing crappie, bass, and catfish. Almost a mile of walking trails surrounds this catch-and-release lake, proving there is no shortage of outdoor fun at Harvest.
As if this list of Harvest’s amenities wasn’t enough, there's even more to enjoy in the community, including:
- The Back Porch
- Farmhouse Coffee & Treasures
- The Hall
- Harvest Hub
