Long & Scott Farms is a 4th generation family farm, just west of Zellwood, Florida. In 1963, Frank D. Scott, Jr. left his Virginia family farm with his wife, and three small children to start his own farm. Frank began by clearing 100 acres of sand land to grow vegetables. In the half-century since, as most independent farms have been sold, Long & Scott Farms has stayed in the family, expanding to a prosperous 1,200 acres brimming with Zellwood Sweet Corn, Kirby cucumbers and cabbage. Each fall, the farm cultivates a new corn maze to complement a 60-foot Super Slide, jumping pillow, playground, hayrides, plus other mazes including a 3 acre Tree Maze created out of more than 1,000 Ligustrum trees. The farm's country cafe offers breakfast and lunch, and the nearby market and produce club feature locally grown produce as well as Long & Scott's own line of jellies, syrups, jams, and relishes.
