THE FIRST MODERN NET ZERO AGRIHOOD IN THE U.S.
Nestled in the pastoral foothills of North Carolina will be a new kind of neighborhood. It’s called Wetrock Farm, and this 230-acre community will be the first solar-powered agrihood in the U.S.
What is an agrihood? A neighborhood that supports and revolves around a thriving farm. It’s a community where your local farmer lives a few doors down and neighbors look out for one another.
At Wetrock Farm, we grow our farmland and community together.
