Minutes from the beach, it becomes obvious that Florida grows a whole lot more than oranges. Florida’s Playground is home to ranches and farms offering everything from horseback riding and fresh-boiled peanuts to corn mazes and the thrill of harvesting your own dessert.
Get in touch with the seasons. Pick your own produce at Sweet Seasons Farms (also home to the local-favorite corn maze), Cambridge Farms (produce and blueberries) and Blue Basket Farms (blueberries). For a fresh, Southern experience, visit Holland Farms for peanuts and have an authentic Florida holiday at Whispering Pines Christmas Tree Farm.
To learn more about farming’s future—including solar power and hydroponics—visit Clear Creek Farms. Horse enthusiast? You won’t want to miss Blackwater Saddle Club. Just east of Milton, a landmark agriplex is in the works. This $1.45 million complex will bring even more agricultural encounters to Florida’s Playground. Naturally EscaRosa also plays a great role in further defining where Agriculture and Tourism meet and the role it plays within Santa Rosa County.
