Heather Oaks Farm is a beautifully quaint and clean farm, independently owned and operated by Bob and Maria Tracy. Bob and Maria, who fell in love and bonded over nature, have built a farm that will give each visitor a unique and memorable experience.
Heather Oaks Farm offers five varieties of naturally grown You-Pick Blueberries (not sprayed with chemicals), five varieties of Certified Organic Muscadine Grapes (certified through the State of Florida), free-range fresh eggs and Organic and Aquaponic vegetables.
Customers can place an order for Lettuce, Kale and Swiss Chard. Bob will grow the produce and two-weeks later, the order is ready for pick-up.
There are free-range chickens, sheep, horses, donkeys, pigs and other animals for visitors to interact with.
Coming soon, Heather Oaks Farm will also offer organic olive oil, pressed from Bob and Maria’s own olive trees.
Visit the farm for a local, healthy and family-friendly atmosphere. Bring your friends and family, too.
Blueberry picking season usually runs end of March through April.
Our blueberries are naturally grown without the use of chemicals. While our blueberries are not certified organic, we DO NOT SPRAY the blueberry plants with chemicals. Families can enjoy the blueberry harvest without worrying about the affects of chemicals in their food.
Blueberries offer numerous health benefits and they freeze exceptionally well, so pick as many as you would like. Blueberry picking is the perfect outdoor activity for individuals, couples and families. Enjoy the natural beauty of our farm while spending time with your favorite people!

Since 2011, Heather Oaks Farm has been growing Muscadine grapes. Our grapes are Certified Organic through the State of Florida. Grapes are a wonderful source of antioxidants.

Heather Oaks Farm is the only farm in Florida to grow Louisiana Irises. There are over 250 color varieties available. While these are similar to the Bearded Iris, the Louisiana Iris is hearty and accustomed to the Florida temperatures. They will continue to bloom year after year.
Organic, aquaponic vegetables are available throughout the year. Some varieties include tomatoes, kale, lettuce, squash and peas. Customers can place an order for Bob’s Aquaponic vegetables and in about two weeks, the special order vegetables will be ready for harvest. Aquaponic growing systems utilize water rather than soil.
Farm fresh eggs are available daily. Over nine dozen eggs are laid daily in the hen house. There is a distinct visual and nutritional difference in farm fresh eggs versus mass-produced, grocery store eggs.
