Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
The employees at Oponay Farms LLC in Lakeland, FL are busy making preparations for the upcoming U pick season including making improvements to all fruit fields and expanding the eco-tour area surrounding the fields. The farm is well-renowned as Florida’s premier destination for U pick blueberries, peaches and strawberries.
A U pick farm allows visitors to pick their own fruit to take home and enjoy on their own. In addition to preparations for the U pick season, workers are also preparing the land for its unique Lakeland eco-tours. This gives visitors the opportunity to come face to face with Florida’s exotic wildlife, including alligators, native birds and plant life.
Oponay Farms LLC sits on a stretch of land rich in history and tradition. The land was originally inhabited by Seminole Indians and was later settled by the Spanish. The area also played a crucial role in the Spanish-American War of 1898. It has since become a nature sanctuary and tourist attraction, where hundreds of visitors come each year to enjoy Lakeland’s unique natural habitat.
Although the farm doesn’t open until the fall, workers are busy in the fields making the necessary preparations for the U pick season. Oponay’s employees also cultivate the fields for commercial purposes. Oponay Farms LLC will soon open during weekends and is the perfect place in Florida to enjoy the wonders of nature with the entire family.
