I'm a local and this was the first visit of many to come. A wonderful trip into the past of an authentic working ranch. We the state of Florida are lucky to have this large chunk of history and ecosystem preserved for the future. Our guide Peggy was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and loves her job- she does what it takes to work here, last week she was painting fences. I love the rustic rich history of old Florida when the Crackers came to hunt cattle in the Scrub. I think everyone should real "A Land Remembered" by Patrick Smith before coming to the ranch to better understand the challenges of settling this part of Florida. The day we went started a chilly 40 degrees with wind, we dressed for it. Yes, it can rain and you will get wet (you may call ahead reschedule if the weather looks bad). Yes, there can be mosquitos bring spray. Yes, it can be hot, it's Florida! Yes, you are treat like a welcome visitor, but this is not a luxury resort. Yes, there are very clean and new restrooms. I loved every tree, every plant, every gator and every bird we saw. I can't wait to visit in the rainy season to experience the difference.
