Forests Change Over Time

Many people have a subtle perception that our time on earth is similar to those who came before us.   Our brief 60 to 90 year life-span is but a blip on the timeline of history.  Take a look at people’s perception of how forests look today.  Many believe forests have always looked similar to how they are…

Spring Update From the President

Well it is spring time down on the farm and it is, without a doubt, the most beautiful time of the year. Everything is growing well and very green. Although the heavy rains and high winds did a small amount of damage, we are thankful that it wasn’t any worse.

We are still planting pickles and corn, winding up the winter cabbage harvest and getting ready for the spring pickle and corn harvest. We are on schedule – and probably a little ahead of schedule – for pickles on April the 10th, and corn for Scott’s Country Market’s April 29th opening. Our team has really been working hard and putting in some long hours with the priority of getting everything ready all at once. Along with making sure the planting is being done on schedule, there is harvest equipment and grading equipment to get ready, administrative efforts to handle shipping, food safety and trace-back systems and of course, setting up Scott’s Country Market which has a new addition this year of a café .

The farm is positioned to have an outstanding spring season and to serve all our customers with the freshest, best-quality produce available in Central Florida. I am very proud of what we have done this season as it has been an uphill battle at times with the weather, but we have adjusted when needed and gotten the job done. The reward is always the beauty of the spring growing season and harvest.

Keep an eye on our website at www.longandscottfarms.com and Facebook pages for the pictures of the farm. Or better yet, take a drive down Jones Avenue to see the beautiful green color of crops growing in the fields. We look forward to your comments and questions, so please let us know your thoughts.

Happy Spring!
