OUR HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Zion Farms & Market started in 2016 on a 20 acre farm in Apopka, FL. Our hard work began in an abandoned garden with 9’ tall grass & weeds, a vision and passion.
Realizing that South Apopka is a food dessert with little access to organic fruits and vegetables within a 10 mile radius, we brought produce & resources to the area. Better yet, local residents were able to see where their produce comes from, pick and purchase on the spot. We also taught gardening, sustainability means & methods utilizing organic – chemical free nutrients.
Now, our platform isn't just a market -- it's a movement! We collaborated with other urban farmers in the Central Florida area and formed Infinite Zion Farms, an alliance owned an operated by our non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Zion Farms & Market.
Under Infinite Zion Farms, we broke ground this month at our third urban garden in the heart of Parramore and we have already started to establish positive connections with the community through our love of gardening. Our goal is to establish urban farms throughout Central Florida and be an affordable source of organic produce and education to our community at large.
