We would like to see healthier restaurant choices, a more diverse neighborhood, less churches. Our city is quiet, we do have a grocery store near by—within walking distance! We have great neighbors

Farmington is a nice sized town considering it is right outside of Fayetteville. It has nice features and an even better public school system.
