In Kentucky, farming is a way of life, tourist attraction
June 11, 2017
GOSHEN, Ky. (AP) — Subdivisions dot the path to the historic Hermitage Farm, providing a glimpse of what its land could look like had it been approved for development back in 2002.
Haviland Argo has seen the plans — with hundreds of homes splitting up the 700-acre property into much tinier plots.
It's a sad thought for the architect who grew up on a Northern Kentucky farm, who knows that the state's farmland continues to be in danger and who's now responsible for turning Hermitage back into a viable operation that will keep it out of harm's way.
Argo isn't alone in the endeavor.
