To us, community means multi-generational living, sustainability, the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and education as well as opportunities to capture elements of local agriculture and promote agritourism. The North River Farms Plan is unique in both its natural and manmade setting. The natural attributes of the site – expansive vistas, the river corridor and agricultural character – have been an attraction for many residents over the years. This design presents a rare opportunity to weave a new idea of an agriculturally based neighborhood, known as an agrihood, into the existing fabric of the Oceanside community. By integrating a high-quality concept into this cornerstone location, North River Farms will provide a unique lifestyle while also maintaining the rural character of the region.
The village core is the heart of the community. It will feature traditional commercial space, retail and restaurant opportunities, a makers space building, an Education Center, community spaces, a farm stand, recreation and an outdoor amphitheater. Centered around a variety of housing options, the flexible village core will bring people together and establish a real sense of place. We invite you to come create your community here at North River Farms! Celebrate and gather at outdoor concerts and festivals, dine at farm-to-table restaurants, make or shop in the artisanal makers space and build a life!
