Located in Orange Heights, Florida; John Henry Brown began what is currently Brown's Farm in 1916, with pecan groves. It became a generational family farm that gained momentum when his son, Ralph Brown began vegetable farming in efforts to bring his family through the Depression almost 80 years ago, selling cabbage for 1 cent a piece. At 100 years old Ralph remains a voice of wisdom and guidance for his son, Roy, who has been managing the farm for over 30 years. Since Ralph and Roy began farming side by side they expanded their farm to the 500+ acres they now maintain.
