Fabulous Farm Sales…Pineapple Hill

 
The second house to be built in this town of orange groves and coconuts
a long long time ago
is a farmhouse up a sandy hill
once  a pineapple plantation in the late 1800’s
:: Pineapple Hill Farm ::

OLD Florida, folks.
Over 120 years of sun and hurricanes and mosquitoes and the smell of orange blossom
and life.

It and it’s sister cottages were lovingly restored
and are lived in.

Where maybe one Saturday a month they open up the marvelous little barn on the property
and sell their pickings…IMG_9166-001

And pickins’ there are
some calmly hanging out in the sweltering sun
cool as cucumbers…southern style.

adorable little hair ties that Mo makes…
A lot of magic happens on this little vintage compound…and big plans for much more!
One of the cottages is rented out seasonally, farmtables and urns and chandeliers can be rented for a fabulous party or wedding….
