Ribbon farm

Long, narrow land divisions for farming / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ribbon farms (also known as strip farms, long-lot farms, or just long lots)[1][2] are long, narrow land divisions for farming, usually lined up along a waterway. In some instances, they line a road.

Ribbon farms along the Detroit River in 1796, where modern Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, now stand. Fort Detroit is on the north side of the river at center left, and Belle Isle is to the right.
