• Our Little Rock Cannery: A Cherished Community Institution

    The Little Rock Cannery is living history and a modern community asset. Farm-to-Table momentum is building and Florida’s Adventure Coast affords a time-honored way to celebrate our enormous local bounty.

    With loads of year round and seasonal produce, the Little Rock Cannery – one of just two remaining in Florida and a handful nationally – supports farms and connects people with healthy fresh food preservation.

    Built in 1941, the rock building was originally a schoolhouse. It later housed an orphanage, a library and
    then – since 1974 – the Cannery.

    Florida’s Adventure Coast is infused with lush farms bursting with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, muscadine grapes, peaches, kale, collards, beans, melons, citrus, sweet potatoes, grass fed beef and so much more! Grab some of that freshness by visiting a u-pick farm, a farm stand or one of many local farmers’ markets.
