Glenn Merritt has always been interested in citrus. He knew at one point that citrus was grown on the coast and he wanted to try to bring it back. After a failed blueberry crop and riding by the local Co-op that had bought too many citrus trees, he thought he'd give it a try. That day he bought 70 trees. Glenn reached out to Auburn University and Louisiana State University for research and development purposes. He learned about water protection to help the tree mature through the winter seasons. With every bonus he earned, he'd invest in 100 more trees. Today the orchard has over 500 trees of various varieties of citrus. Glenn was an employee with MS Power for 30 years and Valeri a seamstress for 30 years. This is how their adventure began. They sale the produce on the farm and give tours year around.
