Owner description: 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.

We were on vacation and staying with Family and on the way to another outing one day we passed by the museum. We decided to go the next day. It was a lot of fun, my kids loved the animals. we really enjoyed hearing the history and visiting the out buildings on the property. It is a beautiful farm and I highly recommend stopping by for a visit.

FAM is an example of a place where everyone can find fun. The tour is great! You can learn about the history of Florida in a fun environment. Kids won't even know they are at a museum! The tour takes you back to a time in Florida when everyone wasn't in such a hurry. Everyone should come and spend a relaxing day away for the hustle and bussel of modern life.

Tired of the rat race? Wish your children and grandchildren could experience the joy of a more simple life? Want to observe historic farm life (and appreciate more our present day luxuries)? Then get to the Florida Agricultural Museum and step back in time while learning about Florida's interesting past. The guides are very knowledgable and they make sure all your questions are answered. Also, if you are a photography buff make sure you bring your camera; you'll get some great shots of the historic buildings and farm animals.

The Florida Agricultural Museum is a hidden treasure. There is so much to do here and so much to learn too! It is very peacefull and energetic at the same time. There are many events that take place on the property throughout the year and it is an absolutely gorgeous place to hold an event like a wedding or a family reunion!

It is amazing how many local people know little or nothing of this gem. Take the one hour tour of this piece of Florida history and you will see a herd of horses, cattle, ducks, chicks etc. There is an old dairy barn, a mule barn, a black cowboy museum, a general store from 1900, houses and farmsteads. Arrange for a ride on horseback and enjoy many miles of trails
Come and enjoy!
