Three Sisters Organic Farm and Fruit & Spice Park

 


[18401 SW 248th Street]
Broaden your mind and your palette with a trip to this beautiful organic farm. You will explore this five acre organic farm located in Homestead and receive a tour from its experienced farmer. Here is your chance to learn about new foods and see how the foods they eat are grown.  Afterwards walk across the street to visit the Fruit and Spice Park. Approaches to agriculture and agribusiness will be discussed and their influences on health. This is a great immersion to decrease the disconnect between people and their food.
