Outside of Pace, Fla., the Wendt family raises vegetables, specialty crops and manages a high-tech operation starting transplants for wholesale. For them, modern technology and old fashioned hard work is a recipe for success.
The Snider family grows crops on 700 acres, manages 2 feed stores, 8 chicken houses and 50-head of cattle and do most of the work themselves so they can realize their lifelong dream: owning their own farmland.
When Ray and Wanda Davis decided to pursue their retirement dream of starting a farm, Wanda had one condition: it had to be beautiful. It is that and more. On only one acre, they bring new meaning to sustainability.
Wealthy northerners no longer hunt quail on the 19th century plantation and tenant farmers don’t grow corn or cotton any more. Instead, scientists study fire and its effect on wildlife on the 4,000 acres just north of Tallahassee, Fla.
Congratulations to the Carlton family, owners of Florida’s Bull Hammock Ranch, who were selected as one of seven regional honorees of the Environmental Stewardship Award Program (ESAP).
