Howe Farms Reviews

2 reviews
The area in which I live is predominantly occupied by military families, as I am located near three major military bases. The majority of the area's working class is employed by the government, either through the military, the NASA base near me, or the shipyards. While the job market is not expanding, unemployment rates for the area are generally low due to the aforementioned institutions.

The majority of businesses in the area are of average quality. Chain restaurants generally dominate the food industry, and the only major shopping center in my area is filled with struggling businesses. While it was recently built and the stores are "high-end," the area's population is not able to support these shops economically.
