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

I've lived in Farmington for about 11 years now and it has consistently grown and improved each and every year. It is a great place to live with good real estate, good schools, good community environment, and has everything you need right there.
I have lived around Farmington my whole life. It's a great city to raise kids in and the schools are fantastic. Even though the town doesn't have much nightlife the next town over Fayetville also has many great big city amenties and is only a few minutes away. There are an abundance of jobs and plenty of big business to make a real career for yourself.
