BROOKSVILLE — It's here. Frazier Farms started selling sweet corn by the dozen ears or by the bushel on May 18, and the cars have been lining up ever since.

Neighbors tell neighbors. Oldtimers tell newcomers. Friends invite friends over for dinner, just to share a bit of this year's Frazier harvest.

When they opened, the folks at Frazier said on their Facebook page that they expected the corn to last about three weeks this year, so don't wait.

Yellow corn, white corn, bicolored corn. And peas. And honey. And green beans.


If you go: Frazier Farms is at 20175 Manecke Road. For information on the latest crop and business hours, call (352) 232-0802. Or search Facebook for Frazier Farms Brooksville.
