Experience the outdoors, meet your neighbors and embrace the community spirit by racing through our tree-lined course in the endless sunshine of Groveland, Florida.
Racers are invited to take part in a 5k, 10k or duathlon. For each participant, we will be donating one tree to be planted in our local community. Proceeds of the race will be donated to a local non-profit organization.
U-PICK FAMILY FUN IN THE FLORIDA SUN
We would like to thank everyone who came out to our Farm Days U-pick event. Over a thousand members of our community came by to enjoy a day on the farm. We enjoyed four Saturdays playing games, enjoying food truck goodies and picking super sweet, easy peel, Florida grown tangerines.
Sometimes it's about getting back to the simple pleasures nature, family and community provide. Other times, we let ourselves be awed by the complex brilliance of our ecosystems. Come experience the farm, leave revived. Farm Days at Cherrylake.
FAMILY OWNED FOR
Our land in Groveland was originally all citrus groves. The freezes of 1983 and 1985 devastated the groves, and the Sallin Family decided to diversify their risk as farmers by planting a different crop. Today, the farm is a leading grower of ornamental plants such as trees, shrubs and palms, but also continues to farm citrus in Groveland and other parts of the Sunshine State. Spanning over rolling hills, with lakes nestled in between, the Cherrylake family has been farming this land for 2 generations. It is the true love for the beauty of the land we farm that brings purpose to our quest to continuously learn and do more for our natural environment.
& LEAVE INSPIRED
In addition to the u-pick tangerines, we will have a variety of activities for you and your loved ones to participate in. From exploring our pollinator garden to enjoying yard games to participating in our pot painting activities, there are options for people of all ages. We will have a variety of local food and drink trucks each week with some of them bringing citrus themed options just for our Farm Days! A day on the farm is a day to enjoy the simple pleasures nature, family and community provide. The rolling hills, the smell of orange blossoms, the shade of an Oak tree, the fluttering of butterflies and the grateful hearts of those around us refresh our spirits and feed our minds.
