“To have the Texas Association of Builders recognize our uniqueness and name us the best in Texas is an incredible honor,” Harvest Green General Manager Jerry Ulke said in a press release. “Home sales in our community have been outstanding due to the healthy-living amenities we offer. We look forward to welcoming more residents as our community grows.”
In addition to being named Best Overall Community More than 600 Acres, Harvest Green was a finalist in the Best Community Amenity, Best Community Clubhouse and Best Website categories.
With 1,930 acres of land, Harvest Green was Houston’s first agri-hood—meaning a neighborhood that intentionally integrates agriculture for its residents. It features a 12-acre farm with an orchard, a greenhouse, homes for goats and chickens, seasonal produce sold on-site each Saturday and a vineyard managed by Messina Hof. Residents can participate in the neighborhood Farm Club, have backyard gardens and even rent plots of land at the farm. Additionally, the master-planned community offers a fresh produce delivery through a local community-supported agriculture program.
Recently, Harvest Green—a Johnson Development master-planned community—acquired 630 acres that will bring approximately 1,400 new homes to the community as well as multiple parks, trails, green spaces and a second pool. The master-planned community was originally planned for 2,000 homes and was also named 2018 Master-planned Community of the Year by the Greater Houston Builders Association in the Houston’s Best PRISM Awards.
