An organic farm experience! Summer is a slow season for production, please keep that in mind.
Yes, you will be staying on a real small organic farm! It is located on a private road, on the edge of a picturesque oak-palmetto forest. Central AC and heat, WiFi in every room. There is also a working fireplace in the living room. In the warm months, there are plenty of native birds and butterflies. If you keep your sound-proof windows open, you will wake up with the roosters. We are ~ 12 miles from UF and ~10 miles from I-75. This is a perfect stop-over place to overnight on your way to South Florida (or if you are driving up North). Relax and rejuvenate with us!
We are a small but functional organic farm. We are expanding, but in no rush to get bigger than what we can manage sustainably. We grow vegetables in raised beds with earthworm compost and fertilize them with sustainably harvested seaweeds and seashells. We collect seeds of uncommon vegetables from all over the world - there is at least one season in Florida when we can grow them! These vegetables are full of micronutrients, so delicious in a fresh juice with some coconut water, mint and lime juice. Ever wanted to try Kale Virgin Mary? Fennel Lemonade? We invite you to join us for breakfast -- fresh vegetable omelet with fresh organic eggs, anyone? If you are a vegetarian foodie, this is what paradise looks like!
We also have a small flock of free range poultry, but that's a separate story (LMK in advance if you are a foodie and want to make a great meal with the freshest organic ingredients, I'll let you know what is currently in season).
You'll find washer and dryer, iron with a board and all the stuff to polish your shoes -- just in case you need to.
Kitchen is fully stocked.
Guests can use all the fruits and vegetables from the farm
It really depends. Since this is a functional farm, there are always chores that we need to take care of.
Well behaved pets are welcome. Some alcohol consumption is OK, but absolutely no drugs. No smoking inside the house. Other than that, we want you to feel at home!
