Florida U-Pick farms are fun for the whole family. Not only are you outside enjoying the delicious Florida sunshine, but there’s an excellent opportunity to appreciate the role of the farmer in our daily lives.

The murals literally painted a picture of the life and times of people throughout the history of this small town.
