George and Joan Casey started their agricultural career in 1962 when George took over his Father’s dairy farm located in Largo, Florida.
In 1970, the Caseys purchased their first beef cattle.
After many side ventures in real estate, George and Joan returned to their farming heritage and purchased Land in Hernando County in 2001.
Today this property is the home of 40 head of Angus cattle and 9 acres of u-pick plants: 60,000 strawberry plants, 1000 blueberry plants and 900 thornless blackberry plants.
The family run farm is operated by the next generation of Caseys, Jeff & Debrah Casey.
Start your own family tradition, and join the Caseys in April to pick fresh ripe blueberries, the first of June for thornless blackberries, and first of November for strawberries. Hurry, they won’t last long!
You can feed the chickens and cows, bring a picnic and make a farm-fresh family fun time.
Remember whenever you visit a farm to call ahead to ensure the crops you want are available, and that the weather is planning to cooperate.
You want to wear close toed shoes, hats and sunscreen. You may want to bring bug spray.
Fresh farm eggs are available year-round. Prepicked and u-pick vegetables and fruit are available in season.
