Farmers Branch is a beautiful city in the DFW area of Texas. Located about 15 miles from downtown Dallas, this picture-perfect American city has everything you’re looking for while searching for your dream home: good schools, safe neighborhoods, and an abundance of job opportunities around every corner. Farmers Branch is home to more than 4,000 companies and hundreds of corporate headquarters.
Founded in the early 1850s and incorporated a century later, Farmers Branch had a slow start. In 1950, the city had less than 1,000 people living in it, but throughout the next decade the city saw rapid growth. So much that there was an almost 1,400% increase in population by 1960!
After that, there was nothing stopping Farmers Branch from becoming one of the most popular cities in the DFW area. By the 70s, the city had 27,000 residents and several corporations calling it home.
Life in Farmers Branch is nothing short of perfect. With the amenities of a big city and the feel of a small town, residents love it here. There is always something going on. Whether it’s the Independence Day Celebration or Halloween in the Park, residents never have to look far to have a little fun. One family favorite is the Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival at Farmers Branch Historical Park. While there, festival-goers can enjoy live Bluegrass music, an arts & crafts marketplace, the KidZone, and the very popular Chili Cookoff.
Speaking of the Historical Park, another Farmers Branch favorite, visitors can enjoy what is essentially an outdoor museum with several original buildings from the 1840s thru the 1940s. The 27-acre park is also home to the FB Mustangs, the city’s very own 1860s vintage baseball team.
If being outdoors is your thing, this city is perfect for you. Farmers Branch has a total of 28 parks, complete with hiking trails, playgrounds, and picnic areas for every nature lover. There are skate parks, baseball diamonds, fishing ponds, and we can’t forget to mention the Farmers Branch Aquatic Center. With all of this outdoor fun, its no wonder Farmers Branch is considered “The City In A Park”!
As far as a good education for your kids, Farmers Branch is served by one of the best school districts in the state. Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District boasts having a very high graduation rate. In fact, at 94% it exceeds the state average by a landslide. A few of the more popular neighborhoods in the city include Rawhide Park, Brookhaven, and Farmington Park Estates.
