Hour and half to two hours
Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
You will tour through five restored buildings – a 1930s, Depression-Era citrus business and a 5,000 square foot dairy barn. Then hop on our tractor-pulled wagon to travel through the woods to an 1890s pioneer homestead. Enjoy hands-on farm activities and meet the farm animals. Our journey continues to Florida’s Black Cowboys Museum, then onto a turn of the century dry goods store. You’ll see tools, saddles, canned goods, bolts of cloth, bales of cotton and a glimpse into everyday life from long ago.
After the tour you are welcome to stay and explore the farm on your own. Pack a picnic lunch before you come – tables and chairs are available at the barn. Purchase cold water and drinks onsite.
Take a short self-guided hike around archaeological site of John Hewitt's water powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813.
