Fresh from the farm

Eddie Cozart, 43, of Brooksville, who works at Frazier Farms on 20175 Manecke Road in Brooksville is trying to keep up with the demand of customers buying freshly picked corn from the morning harvest on Friday, June 27, 2014. Frazier Farms a family owned farm for over 40 years is coming toward the end of their Summer harvest of selling fresh picked sweet corn from their fields along with other produce.
