Thanks so much for your help everyone!! I definitely appreciate it. I am definitely going to check out Deep Creek Ranch, and have started looking for CSAs that are starting up in November. I also have had more luck at the Winter Park farmer's market lately - and have found a great produce stand in Winter Garden (Gardner's Produce) where the people are really friendly and happy to tell you where the produce is from. :)
Hello, I just moved to Windermere from Northern California and am looking for the best place to find free range chicken, grass fed beef, and local produce. I really like supporting local "mom and pop" places if there are any close by. Also, one of the things I miss the most about California is the farmer's markets - am looking for a good substitute here. I tried the market in Winter Garden, but it doesn't seem to have any local farmers (I saw a good quantity of produce that was in plastic and shipped from California!). Any leads on small farms/producers in the area that sell at markets or even direct to customers (I was previously a devotee of CSA boxes and would love to do that again).
