///Our Story///

FARMERS AT HEART
Barron Collier, the county’s namesake, came to Southwest Florida in the early 1900s and was integral in agricultural and commercial endeavors, including the completion of the Tamiami Trail, the highway that opened the east-west commercial corridor between Tampa and Miami. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren now oversee the family operations including venerable successes in mineral management, real estate and community development, agriculture, and philanthropy.

Enter the fourth generation of Colliers and their desire to grow a sustainable, organic farm in Southwest Florida. Harnessing years of family experience, they planted the first field of crops in early 2012, following strict organic farming methods, eventually leading to their official USDA organic certification in 2013. The Ave Maria farm store grand opening and CSA program debuted in the fall of 2012 and word spread throughout the Naples community about the top quality, friendly customer service, and incredible passion of Collier Family Farms.

Now entering its third growing season, Collier Family Farms has expanded to more than just a farm. Farm tours, educational outreach, special events, and local philanthropy are part of everyday operations. A firm commitment to the local Collier county community resonates from their neighbors in Ave Maria all the way to the coastal communities along the Gulf of Mexico.
