Farmer Mike’s U-Pick began its epic story on Rosemary Dr. in Bonita Springs, it was soon clear that SW Florida was hungry for Farmer Mike and Farmer Jim’s fresh veggies! This Father-Son project that started over 18 years ago is now a local legend among farms. The location of the U-Pick moved to its current location of 26031 Morton Ave. off of E. Terry St. and as local patronage grown so have the farms. Farmer Mike and his son Mike Jr. are operating the farm together as 3rd generation and 4th generation farmers. Farming is in their blood as the previous two generations yielded apple orchard and dairy cow, farmers. Farmer Mike has been growing fruits and vegetables for over 30 years in the South West Florida area.
There is so much going on in October you will need to carve out a whole day at Farmer Mikes! They have pumpkins on display which will be some of the best you can get in Southwest Florida this year as they will grow a few of their own, and the rest will come from their friends in NJ – Farmer Larry and Farmer Gary. New Jersey is known for great sweetcorn, great tomatoes, and great pumpkins, these guys grow the best Pumpkins money can buy!!!
