Wet Hammock (ecology)- Also known as Cabbage palm-live oak hammocks, or prairie hammocks, are a sub-type of mesic hammocks composed principally of live oak and cabbage palm trees. They occur in central and southern Florida in prairies and floodplains, on river levees, and on slopes between dry uplands and wetlands.
*U-Pick Blackberries, last day 6/23. Rain shortened season
Blackberry Update 6/23/2017:
It's with a heavy heart that we announce to you that today will be the last day of the season. As many of you know, it's been a tough year for Wet Hammock. All this rain, while good for our aquifer, has been hard on the berries. When it rains every night, the berries get wet and don't get a chance to dry, causing them to start to deteriorate on the vine. We wouldn't want anyone to come out to the farm and pick fruit that wasn't the best quality fruit we can produce, so we have made the decision to close for the season. We are grateful for all of you and hope you continue to follow us. God willing, we will have a pumpkin patch and other goodies coming this fall. We hope to see you all then!

U-Pick Blueberries- Crop lost, March 15th 2017
Blueberry update 4/21/2017:
The nights of March 15th-16th brought sub freezing temperatures to the area which is rare for that time of year. This event, coupled with the unusually warm January and February which advanced the crop by several weeks, devastated our crop for this year. We estimate a 90% crop loss on the blueberries and unfortunately will not have a crop this year. The good news is the plants are fine, and without a fruit load the plants are growing exceptionally well so we should have a large crop next year. This same weather event took most of the peaches as well from our small orchard but the blackberries are as good as ever! We would like to thank all of our dedicated pickers and hope to see you for blackberry harvest.
