The Browns have been a farming family for generations. Our predecessors moved to Miami from Kentucky. In 1915, after deciding they didn’t prefer Miami, they decided to return to Kentucky. By chance, the train that was taking them home broke down in Oxford, FL and the family has been here ever since.
What began as a small store in Wildwood back in the 1930s the business, as it stands today, was founded as a vegetable farm back in 1955. We started our operation on 93 acres of land. Larry was born into a vegetable farming family and grew up working alongside his father taking care of the fields in Sumter County, Florida. Larry’s business saw tremendous growth and Brown and Brown Farms expanded into grass seed production and now grows, harvests, processes, and packages many of the seeds we sell.
Brown and Brown Farms has now expanded to over 1,600 acres with satellite farms in Jackson County, Florida, and Houston County, Alabama. Our main offices are still located where family roots run deep – on the Sumter/Marion county line in beautiful, sunny Central Florida.
