John Hanson visits his horses at his family's farm, located at the intersection of Travilah Road and Quince Orchard Road in North Potomac. Three generations of the Hanson family have farmed the land there, though the farm is no longer economically viable. The family has been meeting with community groups and neighbors about plans for an eventual residential community at the 170-acre farm, a development which was called for in the area master plan.
