Billy Long and Frank Scott, Jr. were childhood friends from the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Billy, who had been a Zellwood "muck farmer" for years, talked Frank into joining him in Florida in 1963. Frank D. Scott, Jr., along with his wife Becky and their three children, Hank, Marks and Rebecca, moved to Florida to establish Long & Scott Farms on 100 acres of land. For the next 30 plus years Frank expanded Long & Scott Farms to 1,200 acres as they produced Zellwood Sweet Corn, pickle cucumbers and both red & green cabbage, along with a variety of other produce.Plan to see Long & Scott Farms and other attractions that appeal to you using our Mount Dora driving holiday planner.
Following the sale of the Apopka muck farms in 1998, Billy Long moved on to retirement, while Frank Scott semi-retired. He still oversees operations at the farm each day, while his son Hank now manages the farm. Frank's daughter Rebecca Scott Ryan manages Scott's Maze Adventures and his youngest son Marks, who also once worked at the farm, manages his own nursery, PlowBoys Horticulture, along with his wife, Mary. Hank's son Sonny and daugher Haley represents the 4th generation of the Scott family's farming tradition and they remain proud of their history and land which they have overseen for more than 48 years.
Long & Scott Farms reviews
Great place! Wonderful people! plenty of food vendors with wonderful goodies Fun activities for all ages 7 acre Corn maze for everyone even strollers! Giant playground, 60 ft super slide, zip line..... more »
We have fun doing the maze each fall. It is a good long walk. We like the clues andddd how the maze changes year to year. Lines to get in can be a very long wait.
Love, love the cafe and the food. The BBQ was fantastic. The store was great, the pumpkins and fresh veggies were great as well. I have to be honest though, I was looking so forward to the corn..and yep, I was let down by it. It was okay, small ears which are typical for a fall harvest- no problem with that. It was the taste..I boiled it, I steamed it and I cut a bunch off the cob and made it cream style.. It was sweet, crunchy and juicy but it lacked a good earthy fresh corn taste. Hard to describe but that is how hubby and I both felt. We were corn hungry...still are! The farm is a great visit to shop and eat at no doubt...we will be back to the cafe!!
