    We are a family owned citrus grove and blueberry patch operation. Citrus is larger-scale than the blueberries so it is not direct marketed. We may have some tasty tangerines for sale in the fall. Drop us a line to inquire about what is available and when. The blueberries are Southern Highbush central Florida varieties: Gulfcoast, Sharpblue, Windsor, Emerald, and Jewel. The season for our berries is April and May. We will sell by pre-order and appointment pick-up and directly at local farmers markets. At this time we do not do a U-Pick but may in the future. Please email your interest along with your name and phone number,if you want. We will gladly add you to contact list for Nightowl events such as U-Pick and other farm events such as tours or harvest dinners. We use and promote earth-friendly, locally grown systems and hope you will too!

  • Mandy Sunshine
    Cocoa Beach, FL
    luzdelsun@yahoo.com
    Hola, my name is Mandy Sunshine and I am most interested in growing fruits and veggies, for family and market, from my coastal home in Cocoa Beach. I am currently focused on learning and implementing biointensive practices that reduce off-site inputs, maximize production on little land, and tackle coast-specific growing issues (i.e., salt, drought, too much sand). My passions most definitely include locally and ecologically responsible food production and enjoyment. Although many here believe that growing alongside the sea is nearly impossible, I remain dedicated to encouraging food production in my beachside community.

  • Country Eight Farm
    Farm Stand opening November 10th, 2007!

    Dave Butler of Country Eight Farm raises pork and pastured turkeys. He also has a small goat dairy herd and produces fresh goats milk and cheese. Vegetables and eggs are available in season as well.

    Goat Cheese Fundraiser going on now!
    Country Eight Farm is raising funds to expand their new diary goat herd. We are offering free, locally-produced goat cheese with your donation to the farm. Choose from the following:

    -Make a $4 donation and receive a 1 pound container of Ricotta Cheese made from Country Eight Farmís goat milk. This cheese is wonderful in lasagna or manicotti or mixed with a little sugar for use in crepes or cannolis - mmm!

    -Make a $5 donation and receive a free 4 oz. log of French-Style Chevre (soft) goat cheese. This is made from Country Eight Farmís goat milk. The goats are raised on browse and grain and are milked twice a day. The milk is pasteurized and the cheese is made using vegetable rennet. It is a soft, mildly-flavored, creamy cheese similar in texture to cream cheese. Mixed with herbs or served with fruit it is just delicious!

    -Make a $6 donation and receive two 4 oz. wheels of fresh goat-cheese mozzarella. Also made from Country Eightís pasteurized goat milk, this is a firm mozzarella with a superb flavor. It is made from animal rennet so vegetarians may want to go with the chevre. Perfect served with tomato slices and garnished with a little olive oil and basil!
