The spring weather put us in the mood to get out of the house a bit. We decided to take an impromptu road trip down the coast. The first stop was Hunsader Farms in Manatee County about an hour south of Tampa. The farm/campground/petting zoo/produce market has a massive field of sunflowers that are “pick your own.” You pay 2 dollars per person to enter the field and 1 dollar per flower cut. You pay cash so make sure you hit up an ATM before your visit.
We then made a spontaneous pit stop at the Fiorelli Winery. The small winery has a nice selection of blended wines aged, bottled, and grown onsite. The vineyard has had to institute a few policies such as only allowing one family at a time in the tasting room at a time. The wine was good and we departed with a couple of bottles. We know that our two dollars and in the case of the winery our 50 dollars aren’t like a massive stimulus but we honestly believe that every little bit helps.
