Whether you realize it or not, the first solar panels were not invented by man. The first solar panels can be found in the leaves of each plant we grow on the farm. Each leaf takes the energy of the sun and converts it to food energy for you and me to eat. Without the sun there is no food for you or me.


When people think of a farm they often have images in their mind of what they will find. Often we are asked, "Do you have any animals on the farm?" Well now we can say, "Yes!" When you come out to the farm you will likely be greeted by the two newest members of our farm family Lily and May.


We trully hope that you will enjoy this tasty Sopa Verde Vegetariano recipe offered by Michael Mercado's. See more recipes here.


Milk Truck

Here's a quick run down of the dairy operation.

The cycle I am shooting for is seasonal and is usually geared towards having a cow in milk when the grass is growing vigorously. Another factor is that it is harder on a cow to be in milk with the heat of summer, so there are opposing advantages as to when you keep your cows in milk in Florida.

A heifer can be impregnated for the first time as early as 15 months. The gestation is 9 months so a cow would start producing milk at 24 months at the earliest.
