About Short Family Farm

Since 1887, generations of the Short family have farmed 200 acres on the outskirts of Franklin, at the northwest corner of Mack Hatcher Parkway and Highway 96 West. Now they want to create a mixed-use rural village, an Agri-hood centered on working farms, land conservation, and agriculturally based destinations and experiences for the century to come.

The public was invited to join the family and design team in a multi-day series of workshops, known as a Charrette. The purpose was to offer a forum for open and meaningful dialogue where interested citizens, the design team, city staff, and public officials came together to collaborate directly with the Short family and the development team at the beginning of the planning process.
