Fresh Gardens Farm Tour

This is a family-owned farm operating in the historic Redland growing area in Dade county Florida. They have over 1,000 tropical trees on their farm. Specializing in Golden Passion fruit, Longans, Lychees, Guava, Carambola, and Dragon Fruit.

They sell their fruit directly to the public and offer a u-pic when available.

The regular rate is tour rate $12 per person and includes a basket of fruit.

If six people want to team up, Farmer Bob will give you a rate of $8 per person, but it only includes one basket of fruit to split between all of you. Let me know if you want to do that, so I can give him a heads up.

I have 4 people that paid me the Groupon rate of $5, and I have space for one more at that rate. This does not include the basket of fruit. Please let me know if you wish to join me at that rate.

Carpoolers! Let's meet in a central location, say the Sunrise Park & Ride Sunrise, FL 33323, where we can leave the cars and all go together onto I-75 down to Homestead. I suggest getting there at 1:00 to get situated and leave promptly at 1:15 PM. It takes a little over an hour and includes toll. Here are the directions from Google maps:

    The farmer, Bob, changed the time for tomorrow to 4:30. Let's meet at 3:00 at the Sunrise park and ride.

    I am looking forward to tomorrow. I want to carpool. Is there still plans to carpool?

    I understand that this conflicts with the Cinema Paradiso event and I really apologize. I'll try to reschedule to a different Sunday. Which Sunday would you be willing to go instead? Farmer Bob doesn't like to schedule way in advance and his preferable times are 2 PM or 11 AM, but he won't say for sure until 2-3 days before the event, so it should be on a day you're pretty open.

    If you paid ahead to be included in the Groupon, we will all need to meet and go in together (separate from the rest of the group), so please link up with me so we can do so.

      Barbara, I'm not sure of the deadline you're referring to. I have availability on my Groupon. I'm offering it to who will prepay for $5. If you wish to come in on the Groupon, please let me know.

      This is Sandra. My sister, Barbara, and I prepaid. Any ideas where we can meet?

    I spoke with the Farm owner Bob and he is thinking of scheduling the time to 11A or 2P. He isn't firm on the exact time. I'll get a better timing from him tomorrow.
