The lush countryside of Florida’s Adventure Coast, Brooksville-Weeki Wachee is dotted with farms just bursting with flavor. Grab your favorite shade hat and basket to gather your own seasonal harvest, whether sweet juicy berries or fresh veggies. Visit fields open during harvest seasons and unique agricultural operations for planned tours. You can even preserve your savory treasure at the cannery here on Florida’s Adventure Coast.
Favorites for tours and picking are strawberries from late November to April, blueberries in April and May and blackberries in June and July, while muscadine grapes ripen in August and September. Famous Frazier Farms corn is eagerly anticipated to ripen from May to July. Fresh colorful produce of many kinds is available year-round at Upicktopia and Beasley Farms.
Florida’s Adventure Coast is the sweet spot for growing the beloved and super-healthy blueberry. Thanks to our cold-but-short winter and some agricultural ingenuity, blueberries ripen and reach the national market from Florida earlier each year than any others. Specially cultivated Florida blueberries are fresh, juicy and first to your spring shopping basket.
Sweetfields Farm and HarvestMoon Fun Farm offer Spring and Fall mazes with a dazzling display of lush sunflowers in the Spring and sky-high corn in the fall. With entertainment, produce and animals for petting, the entire family will enjoy their visit.
Stroll through an organic Olive Grove and learn all about this amazing fruit. Join a workshop and learn how to press olives, make soaps, extracts and more. Schedule an afternoon with a group of five or more or attend one of the frequent events in this scenic location.
When you’ve picked your fill – and then some – head to the Little Rock Cannery where the Hernando Growers Association offers classes and appointments to can your harvest. Eat what you can, can what you can’t!
