Perhaps not the photo you were expecting to see today?
We just wanted to remind you that your vacation to Southwest Florida doesn’t have to be all about our gorgeous coastline. There are so many interesting places to visit in the region and all are easy day trips from Ocean’s Reach.
On your next visit down, for example, you may want to check out Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm and learn all about sustainable farming.
Rosy Tomorrows was founded by Rose O’Dell King. Her experiences as a former sheep farmer, French Culinary Institute trained chef, certified Sommelier, and food and wine columnist have all taught Rose that good food depends on good ingredients, and “it is only the very best ingredients with the very best provenance that make the very best dishes.”
After searching for almost a year, Rose discovered a 100-acre property with beautiful vistas in North Fort Myers that would become Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm.
“I created Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm with a mission of raising the very best food—organically, holistically, sustainably, humanely, and as close to nature as possible,” she says.
Rose invites you to come visit and experience a true working farm in all its sustainable glory. As Rose puts it: “See the laying hens, the majestic longhorn cows, baby calves, and piglets! Feed organic alfalfa to the miniature donkeys and Jersey dairy cows. You can enjoy a delicious brunch based on the bounty of the farm and served with handmade beverages, local craft beer, or delicious wines. Sit out on the patio or in the picturesque dining room, read the newspaper, and, of course, pick up your weekly provisions of pastured meats, poultry, and eggs.”
The farm is open Thursdays and Fridays from 9am – 3pm, and on Saturdays from 11am – 3pm. RSVPs are required, so call 239-567-6000 or head to their website for more information.
