Greetings from Beasley Farm

We've been busy! Prepping the fields and planting our Fall and Winter Crops. Details above.

If you enjoy prepping your own fruits for jams, pies and other desserts,
now is the time to phone the farm and special order cases of these items.

Thank you for recycling your plastic bags with us.
We are in big need of the bags at this time.
This helps us keep our prices low.

Have you been enjoying those delicious apples coming in from our eastern states? It might be good to special order a case or two, for canning, and enjoy them all year. Apples contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fiber, Phosphorus, Potassium and other minerals. They are delicious in lunches, diced into jello and baked in pies, cobblers, cakes and turnovers.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

On December 1, 2010, we welcomed a surprise visit from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Periodically, the FLDACS tests farms to detect trace pesticides, hazardous pesticides, and other harmful residues. We are pleased to share our official results with you. After testing our farm for 175 different pesticides, the Chemical Residue Analysis Report confirmed the following: "in compliance with Florida Statute chapter 500,  no pesticides detected." It was an interesting experience and we are grateful that FLDACS protects the Florida consumer by periodically verifying the products grown in Florida. We're happy to share the information with you, too!
