Fun on the farm, that describes the Florida Agricultural Museum. Visit our 1890 Florida Cracker home complete with rare heritage livestock (Cracker Cows, Cracker Horses and the Florida piney woods rooter hog). Chickens, ducks and a tame turkey greet our visitors before they depart on a tractor ride tour of the museum's historic farm buildings. Guided horseback riding is available by reservation. Horseback ride along beautiful trails over our 400 acre property or ride your horse over Interstate 95 on the "horses only" bridge to an adjoining 3000 acres of riding trails. Camping with or without your horse is available. You can also visit the Hewitt's Sawmill Archaeological Site located on a heavily treed 3/4 mile hiking trail. Discover the site of a water powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813. We also rent Governor Caldwell's 5000 square foot diary barn for parties and wedding receptions. You can even get married lake side under a canopy trees. Everything at our museum is real. Not a plastic rock in the place. Come visit us and you will learn some Florida history and you might even carry home a free souvenir on your shoe. Your tour will last at lease an hour but the memories will last forever.

Unfortunately we went on a day when the tour-guide had a personal emergency, but the staff was very kind and showed us around for free just to see the livestock and tell a bit about the history. They keep cracker horses and cattle, the original breeds brought by the Spanish centuries ago. It was quite interesting and if I ever... More

There is a fee and grounds include barns, livestock and house. In the fall they have a haunted trails event which is not to be missed. I... More

We came here a few years ago and there was not a lot going on. I am glad to see that it has filled out a little with some shops and restaurants

My wife and I became aware of the Ag Museum at this year's Ag Summit in West Palm Beach. On our trip up to Jacksonville, we stopped in to visit the Ag Museum. In rural surroundings, it's easy to pass the entrance. We did. There's a small sign indicating the Ag Museum, but once we found it, we were more... More

We went here for the antique tractor and engine show, and it was a great day out for us and our young kids (ages 1 & 3). There were lots of animals to see, all of the volunteers were super friendly, and we even got a private tour of the restored cracker farm house and old general store. I had... More
