• Chat with neighbors on the porch. Make meals with vegetables you picked today. Solar power your home. Walk to the store that sells fruits grown locally. Picnic in the park. Bike to town. Watch the kids grow up healthy. Wake up where the sun smiles over a wide, green landscape. Nourish your life.

    This is not a nostalgic dream. It’s the immediate future at The Cannery in Davis, California’s first farm-to-table new home community.

  • The Cannery harmonizes with the values of Davis. It offers a safe, healthy, and sustainable environment. Smart living grows naturally in Davis. It has the second-highest percentage of graduate degrees in the country. People choose Davis for its high quality of life. It is the intellectual home of California’s booming agriculture industry, sustaining everything from wineries to organic farming. Davis and its UC Campus nurture ideas that nourish the world.

  • Swim in the lap pool. Relax in the spa. Enjoy time with friends by the outdoor fireplace. Throw a BBQ. Play in the game room. Schedule a get-together in the community room. At The Ranch House, The Cannery residents and their guests can truly indulge in a full range of recreational amenities.

    Not only a place to relax, The Ranch House was also designed with energy efficiency in mind. The solar panels hosted on the roof help to offset The Ranch House’s electrical use.

  • The Farm House is an iconic 1,644 square-foot building located at the heart of The Cannery community. Featuring a generous 1,836 square foot covered, wrap-around porch, The Farm House acts as the community’s Welcome Center. Ultimately, this building will be deeded to the City of Davis, who will partner with The Cannery to ensure it is used as a prized destination for future Davis and Cannery events.

    The Farm House’s design is consistent with the green living and energy sustainability efforts at The Cannery and features a photovoltaic solar system to help offset electricity demand.

  • On April 23rd The Cannery hosted its first annual Can Run 5K, 10K and Kids Fun Run. Over 350 runners, ranging from 5 to 71 years old, enjoyed a beautiful Saturday morning racing around our farm-to-table community while family and friends cheered them on. Proceeds from The Can Run benefited the Davis Schools Foundation. We hope to see you next year!

  • The idea for living at The Cannery is pure and natural: Surround homes with parks and a working farm. The parks and open space energize the residents and the farm feeds the community. The Cannery will include 547 homes with energy efficient and Livable Design™ features built into every residence. The homes will be diverse, for all generations and lifestyles, including for-sale and for-rent, detached and attached, high-end and affordable residential opportunities. In addition, some homes' multi-generational “Life Space” designs include guest houses and private quarters. Every home is within 300 feet of a park or trail that connects to Davis' bicycle network.

  • At The Cannery, the entire cycle of life – from raising food to raising families – revolves in one, healthy place.  The first fresh, green community bordered by its own farm, The Cannery is rooted in the most up-to-date neighborhood and environmental thinking. Yet, it is down-to-earth and friendly with parks, paths, stores, and plazas that make life easier, healthier, sustainable, and comfortable.

  • As California’s first farm-to-table new-home community, The Cannery will provide the homes, restaurants, and local neighbors with fresh seasonal produce through its own working 7.4-acre working farm. In conjunction with the Center for Land-Based Learning, The Cannery Farm will serve as a state-of-the-art example of sustainable urban farming and as an agri-classroom for beginning farmers.

  • The Commerce District and Town Center at The Cannery will include stores and retail experiences that act as a vibrant icon within the community and include comfortable plazas and integrated mixed-use residences. The Commerce District brings offices and services to the community and commercial opportunities for start-up businesses and mid-size tech firms looking for professional office, flex space, and small office creative spaces.

  • Parks, paths, and plazas help to make life easy and healthy at The Cannery.  With nearly 1/3 of The Cannery site being dedicated to open space, residents and visitors will find a wide array of outdoor activities await them once in the community. The 4.7-acres of neighborhood parks include a practice field, sports court, bocce ball and play areas – plus a gazebo and picnic spaces.  The Cannery Amphitheatre will be a gathering space for fairs, festivals, concerts, and performances while greenbelts and community buffers include multi-use paths, interpretive exhibits, and seating.

  • The Cannery will establish a national model for connectivity and New Urban Design. Every home will be 300 feet from a park or open space. An extensive network of bike and walking paths will connect the residents to each other and the larger Davis area. Uninterrupted bike and pedestrian connections include a network of loops around the project that ensure each destination within The Cannery is no more than a 10-minute walk or five-minute bike ride away.

  • Taking Davis' lead in environmental stewardship and sustainability, The Cannery site and buildings will reduce reliance on cars, limit energy consumption, enable renewable energy production, and contribute to a healthy environment. The Cannery’s bold sustainability starts with low-impact land use. Actually, land reuse, since The Cannery re-imagines the former Hunt-Wesson tomato cannery site. The central location saves resources: UC Davis and downtown are five minutes or less away. Parks and paths connect neighbors everywhere they turn. The Cannery will be one of the most energy efficient new home communities in the country. A 1.5 kV photovoltaic solar system and electric vehicle charging pre-wire will come standard with every home, and residents can upgrade to net zero living.

  • The Cannery is committed to building homes that have innovative building features for a sustainable home which presents significant benefits. These features include: Cool Roof Certified-roofing materials, Attic Insulation, Radiant Barrier, Blower Door Testing, Quality Insulation Installation Inspection, Windows with better Uvalue/SHGC Ratings, Ducts in Conditioned Space or High Performance Attics, Water Heating, HERS testing, and Electric Vehicle Charging Pre-Wire.

  • Through the standards established in each home, energy sustainability is accomplished. The passive solar design reduces energy demand along with the energy-efficient building designs. Each home has photovoltaic systems and will be prepared for the installation of solar power if chosen by the future owner. There is also no net electric for maintenance of public spaces. Lastly, homes will be pre-wired for electric vehicle charging, and the mixed-use and multi-family areas will include charging stations.

  • A dedicated effort to conserve water is implemented through turf reductions in residential areas and the park, smart/centrally controlled irrigation controllers, and water-reducing fixtures and appliances. Non-potable water from an onsite agricultural well will also be used for irrigating landscaped areas along roadways and within open-space greenbelts, parks, and The Urban Farm.

While wood and steel make for strong homes, the best homes are the ones built with heart. We recognize that our homes are a reflection of ourselves, our experiences and the people we have loved. This is our legacy. Our homes are an expression of the knowledge we have about how people want to live. For us, they are individual works of art for the world to see and enjoy.

We hold ourselves to a higher standard. We demand more from ourselves. We care about how the home looks, feels, and lives, and why a particular piece of land was chosen. We care about the relationships with our craftsmen, our lenders, our neighbors. And we expect from them what we expect from ourselves – a belief that this process is as much about building a better life as it is about building a better home.

We’ve spent decades building homes and became a publicly traded company (NYSE: NWHM) to help fuel our growth while remaining committed to our roots. Homebuilding gives us a profound sense of fulfillment as we strive everyday to provide better environments, contribute to better schools, and support communities with a sense of social consciousness – all with a level of integrity, respect, and compassion for the world in which we live.

This is The New Home Company.
