Mary Ann and Merle Betts are the 3rd generation in his family to live on a very delightful farm in Hilliard, FL.  In the 1920’s a European soldier gave grandpa Betts some snow pea seeds that he brought home to his family farm and planted them. These very delicious peas are still growing on their 65 acre farm today. They not only raise the special snow peas but also corn, peanuts, elephant garlic, potatoes, tomatoes and more.

Pecan and Pine trees are additional assets on the farm.

Not only plants but also special Guernsey cows are living on the land. This year their granddaughter named a new baby cow, Lucy. Of course all of the family loves Lucy!!
