In the Land Where Dreams Come True
This is a developed community, with many elegant homes, good roads, schools, churches, growing towns and splendid railroad facilities.
Our lands are high, rolling and perfectly drained, with clay sub-soil. No artificial drainage is necessary at any time of the year
Our land can be cleared easily and inexpensively – only a few dollars per acre- there being no palmetto.
Elevation and surrounding lakes afford priceless cold protection for the growing of citrus fruits, to which our soil is perfectly adapted. You can develop a grove here on less money than elsewhere.
Our district has become the greatest watermelon center in the State, if not on the continent. Watermelons are a reliable, quick-money crop.
You can have a telephone, connecting with five towns, in your home, and automobile free grocery and dry goods delivery to your door.
This is a demonstrated district for Natal grass, the great stock feed, which rivals Alfalfa, capable of producing a good yield per acre, worth $30 a ton. This is a fine stockraising section.
Our soils and climate are adapted to many crops, which can be raised between the row while a citrus grove is being developed.
We have in this vicinity many of the oldest, finest and most profitable citrus groves in Florida. Shipments from this district in one year exceeds one-half million boxes.
Our water supply is pure and abundant, and lumber and building material are cheap.
Many beautiful, clear-water lakes afford the finest boating, hunting and fishing, as well as charming home sites.
We have 200 miles of hard road : $500000 has been appropriated for additional boulevards in this country, which leads in good roads. Your farm can border on or be convenient to a fine roadway.
There will be many thousand young trees planted here for our investors this season, thereby adding to the fame which this district already have as a citrus section. Nowhere else in Florida can you find so many advantages. The record-breaking groves are here – therefore so should you be. Begin owning a grove TODAY. Good roads, fine water, healthy and delightful climate make living conditions here most excellent, and remember that here you can develop better groves for less money.
