About Us

Florida Pioneer Family Farm

Six generations continue to manage the cross-bred cattle herd along the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga as Central Florida's population explodes with people seeking to enjoy the climate and beauty that pioneers found.

Ranching and Family Enterprises

Like the Platt's, today's ranching families live diversified lives.  Shane Platt is the Chief Appraiser for Farm Credit of Central Florida, Carol Platt is a Broker Associate with Crosby & Associates, Inc. ("The Land Specialists"), Josh Platt (AKA Bossman) is a concert lighting designer & stage manager and Jenna Platt is a Graduate Assistant at Auburn University majoring in soil science.

Stewardship & Sustainability

Although the ranch is now 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport, Disney World and Downtown Orlando, stewardship through sustainable practices remain a family priority in preparation for the future. 2013 Florida Environmental Leadership Award &  NCBA Regional Environmental Stewardship Award Winners.
