Long & Scott Farms, Mount Dora

(60+ reviews on the web)
Farm
Billy Long and Frank Scott, Jr. were childhood friends from the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Billy, who had been a Zellwood "muck farmer" for years, talked Frank into joining him in Florida in 1963. Frank D. Scott, Jr., along with his wife Becky and their three children, Hank, Marks and Rebecca, moved to Florida to establish Long & Scott Farms on 100 acres of land. For the next 30 plus years Frank expanded Long & Scott Farms to 1,200 acres as they produced Zellwood Sweet Corn, pickle cucumbers and both red & green cabbage, along with a variety of other produce.

Following the sale of the Apopka muck farms in 1998, Billy Long moved on to retirement, while Frank Scott semi-retired. He still oversees operations at the farm each day, while his son Hank now manages the farm. Frank's daughter Rebecca Scott Ryan manages Scott's Maze Adventures and his youngest son Marks, who also once worked at the farm, manages his own nursery, PlowBoys Horticulture, along with his wife, Mary. Hank's son Sonny and daugher Haley represents the 4th generation of the Scott family's farming tradition and they remain proud of their history and land which they have overseen for more than 48 years.

  • We visited to take our granddaughter strawberry picking. Nice country farm but a bit "disjointed" is the only way I can describe it. All and all, a nice way to spend a little time on the farm with the...  more »
