When the outcry for 18-year-old Cameron Davison’s landscaping services grew too large for one man, the yard phenom met his fans' demand by founding New Nature Landscaping, LLC. Cameron employs a cadre of lawn technicians and an experienced designer Alfonso Dominguez to turn lawn frowns upside down with two installments of landscape maintenance. Upon arrival, ground groomers consult with homeowners and narcissistic patio furniture to determine each yard’s manicuring needs.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, it?s not uncommon to hear Johnny Cash tunes echoing across Showcase of Citrus farm?s 2,500 acres as members of the Arnold family shake off another satisfying workweek with their friends and customers. Fourth-generation grower John Arnold and his family can usually be found caring for their groves of citrus trees, collecting fruit, making juice, feeding farm animals or greeting visitors from around the globe.
Located just 15 minutes from Disney World, the Arnold family farm produces more than 50 varieties of citrus fruit and blackberries without using pesticides, herbicides, or magic beans. The fruit?as well as jams, jellies, marmalades, and honey?are all available onsite at Farmer John's Old Time Country Store where guests can sample sauces, jellies, marmalade, and honey. Guests can spot native or exotic wildlife such as alligators, zebra, water buffalo, watusi cattle, or scarlet macaws on one of the farm?s monster-truck eco-safari tours.
