Banks Helfrich is a native Floridian and small farmer.  He built his home on a seven-acre plot of former citrus groves and created a food forest, food-bearing orchard, vineyard, vegetable garden, rainbow eucalyptus forest and pineapple/blueberry patch. 

Banks opens his seven-acre farm to the public for a “Here On The Farm” event during which time he helps to instill, educate and encourage “own-grown” foods and a holistic lifestyle.
