THE FOX SQUIRREL CORN MAZE
October 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until 10/27/2019
The Futch Family is excited to host our 8th annual “Fox Squirrel Corn Maze” in 2019 on the Single R Ranch in Plant City, Florida. We were awarded the Farm Family of the year by Hillsborough County in 2015, we are very proud of this achievement as we have worked hard for many years. The ranch has been in our family since 1920, eight (8) generations. Our Grandfather, Ralph, began putting together the ranch in the 20’s and 30’s which became 2000 acres of land for raising cattle and citrus. Our Dad, Alvin Futch, purchased the ranch and cattle operation in 1972 from his dad and upon his death in April 2019 his children continue to operate. And yes, the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren still help with the chores when we need an extra hand!
Our Dad, Alvin Futch wrote two great books,
“Wild & Wooley” The TRUE and exciting escapades of a real Cracker cowboy, born and raised in West Central Florida during the 1930′s-1960′s era!
“SAWMILL” is the continuation of Alvin’s Wild & Wooley escapades from 1962 into the 90’s.
We hope you were able to obtain a copy of his books as they are no longer in print, check with your local library as there are a few on the shelves.
