About
Escape to a haven of tranquility and green innovation at our idyllic RV camping destination, where the pioneering spirit of agricultural research meets the age-old tradition of olive cultivation. Here, amidst the bustling life of Hastings, Florida, lies a sprawling 12.4-acre farm that is not just a testament to the Santos family's passion for olives but a groundbreaking research project aiming to revolutionize olive farming in the Sunshine State. Immerse yourself in the diverse world of olive trees with over 2500 specimens spanning 8 varietals from Greece, Italy, and Spain. Marvel at the Koroneiki and Kalamata, taste the essence of the Taggiasca and Ascolana, and explore the qualities of the Picual, Manzanilla, Arbosana, and Arbequina. Each variety has been carefully selected for its unique contribution to the flavor palette of olive oils, an endeavor led by the expert insights of Reinaldo Valdes, PhD, and a team of seasoned olive growers from Andaluca, Spain. While you await the fruits of this ambitious project, with the first harvest anticipated in 3 to 5 years, indulge in an exploration of the world's finest olive oils. This family-run farm not only educates on the vast benefits and properties of these luxurious oils but also offers them for your culinary delight. For those inspired by the lush environment, the farm provides olive trees for your home or garden, enabling you to take a piece of this green dream back with you. Our commitment to the environment goes beyond olive production. As a proactive carbon farm, our olive trees stand as a formidable army against carbon dioxide, with a fully grown tree absorbing up to 4.5 tons of CO annually. This initiative holds particular significance given our proximity to one of the country's remaining coal-burning power plants, highlighting our dedication to sustainability and ecological harmony. Bird enthusiasts and nature lovers will find themselves amidst a paradise, with the farm doubling as a bird sanctuary. The diverse array of seasonal birds, from migrating ducks to majestic hawks, cardinals, and cranes, provides an ever-changing spectacle against the backdrop of awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets. In this serene oasis, we invite you to leave behind the hustle and bustle of daily life. Our sanctuary is a place of learning, growth, and relaxation, away from the complexities of the outside world. No politics, no soliciting, just pure, unadulterated peace among the olive groves. If your heart seeks an RV camping experience that combines environmental stewardship, agricultural innovation, and the simple joys of connecting with nature, look no further.
