A little bit of everything - on a farm

Went to Henscratch Farms & Winery where we saw chickens that lay green eggs. (Supposedly this is where Dr. Suess got his inspiration.) This farm works with Florida A & M and has a... read more

Went to Henscratch Farms & Winery where we saw chickens that lay green eggs. (Supposedly this is where Dr. Suess got his inspiration.) This farm works with Florida A & M and has a lot of experimental crops and farming methods such as "Hydroponics " which is "soil-free" growing. The picture of what looks like four pots on top of...

We have visited Henscratch Farms Winery every year for the past 5 years for their annual Grape Stomp in August. You get to step into a vat with tons of grapes and stomp them "I Love Lucy style." It is the coolest thing ever! There are 200 free range chickens and roosters that run around on the premises. They are... More

Our group of 47 descended upon Henscratch Winery and they handled us with aplomb. We fed their chickens, rested on the fan cooled front porch, sampled their sweet wines, oogled their eggs, and chatted with these very friendly proprietors. All in all, you will probably enjoy this little country winery if you enjoy a country setting, nice shade trees, sweet... More

This trip was planned for the sole purpose of acclimating our 9 month old chocolate lab to traveling. My husband and I like to visit wineries, and on the way to the State Park, we found Henscratch!! The pup wasn't really interested in the wine tasting but she sure got a surprise none of us expected. She just stood and... More

We went wine tasting and hoping to get some strawberries and a strawberry shake. Due to the cold weather there were no strawberries at our visit. We did enjoy tasting some wines and looking around the cute gift shop. Outside there are many hens and roosters running around that you can look at!

Our friends asked us if we'd like to spend an afternoon at the winery listening to music. Of course we'd like to and that's just what we did. We tasted some wine. It was ok; the music was pretty good; it was a beautiful sunny afternoon outdoors and they have a really cute gift shop, but the real fun was... More

Visited the winery while on family vacation. Very small, but has good wine selection. Kids enjoyed feeding the chickens while grownups tasted wines.
