As a third-generation farmer in Central Florida, Dennis Spivey started with five acres in 1969. He grew peppers (cayenne, long hot, hungarian wax) along with other vegetables and added five more acres of land a couple years later. His big jump into farming came in the late 1970s, when he leased 40 acres of land just south of Plant City, Florida. While continuing to grow a variety of vegetables, he added strawberries to his farming portfolio.
Currently, the farm’s primary crop is strawberries during the winter months, but we also ship cherry and grape tomatoes when in season.
