Moved to Harvest with my wife from New Jersey in 2008 and love it. The area has a great rural feel while being only a few minutes from Madison and Huntsville! So much more is done with your tax money and NJ. We love the diversity and small town feel. I highly recommend this town!

Harvest is a quiet suburb with amazing neighbors. Not too far from shopping and nightlife! The schools are amazing!
I'm new here, bought a really nice priced new construction home. Most new communities are not over $250,000 lots of cotton farms but it seems they are being cleared for housing. The main thing I noticed is people are respectful of your property. Quiet. Never ever rude. It's lovely living here. I do notice a bit of littering on the sides of the roads. If that wasn't so, it would be perfect : )
