We are a small, veteran-owned farm outside of Tallahassee, Florida in Monticello. We grow blueberries and are working on expanding our fruit and vegetable offerings.
We have three u-pick fields with a number of varieties of southern highbush and rabbit-eye blueberries nestled in a backdrop of tupelo swamp and pines.
We have a never ending supply of rewarding hard work around on the farm. Maintaining a naturally grown farm isn't easy.
Scott & Jennifer Steele
Scott is a retired Army veteran who grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania. After 27 years in the Army Aviation working on chinooks, Scott wanted a place to retire and see what life threw his way.
We moved back to Florida so Jennifer, a Louisiana native with a love of the outdoors, could continue work as a coastal geologist.
We are Scott and Jennifer Steele
We purchased the farm from Steve and Rebecca Anderson in 2016 and are continuing the u-pick operation. We are part of the Red Hills Small Farm Alliance and sell through their on-line market during blueberry season.
Steve and Rebecca started Myrtle Creek Farm in 2002, but in 2016 were looking for a second retirement.
The timing was perfect! We bought the 22-acre farm complete with established blueberry fields in a park-like setting. It may be a lot of work, the reward makes it all worth it.
