Shownotes

Old Florida. We miss it.

Remember the roadside farm stands where you could drink your fill of freshly squeezed orange juice for a quarter?

Remember the expansive citrus groves, the homemade fudge, marmalades, and Lemonade?

A stop at a local farm for all these things was always a treat. Sadly many of these farms have long since become industrial parks and family neighborhoods.

But one amazing couple is keeping their family farm alive and thriving while keeping with traditions and changing with the times.

I'm very pleased to welcome Janet Mixon, owner of the Mixon Fruit Farms to our show today.

In this episode, Janet will share with us ...

  • One thing most people don’t know about her
  • What is so special about their gift shop
  • What's so special about the Wedding Pavilion
  • The children's tram and all the animals the kids can pet
  • Upcoming events
  • ... and much much more

I do indeed appreciate all of you for tuning in. It is my hope that you will not only listen and learn but ... connect!
