When Art Imitates Ag Life

For a lot of folks in the ag community, a perfectly kept farm or ranch is a distinct thing of beauty.
If you’re like me, you can envision one of God’s artistic agricultural masterpieces in your mind’s eye as you’re reading this.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge all the intentional artwork that highlights the beauty of agriculture that the good Lord gave us. This month’s Ag in Art edition of Central Florida Ag News celebrates the talented artists who create works of art from the world around us. We hope you find the works on these pages as stunning as we do.

As the end of the year approaches, let’s make sure you’ve got these exciting events on your
● 52nd Alafia River Rendezvous (January 11-22, 2023)
This event is a living portrayal of pre-1840 America held in Homeland each year. An
estimated 1,400 participants dress in clothing and stay in tents and shelters that would
have been seen in that time. There are designated days for visitors: January 20-21. You
can learn more at the website: www.alafiariverrendezvous.org.
● Florida Flywheelers’ Christmas in the Village (December 9-10 & 16-17)
This is a charity event that features an antique village decorated as a winter wonderland
covered in lights. The best part is you can drive through the village from the comfort of your own
vehicle, so those who have mobility concerns can still enjoy the event.
● 35th Annual Antique Engine & Tractor Swap Meet (January 18-21)
This is a great opportunity to buy, sell, and swap engines, tractors, parts, and pieces.
Antique engines will be on display, and there will be a pedal tractor pull for kids, antique
car and tractor parades, and functioning sawmill demonstrations.

Don’t forget to check out our calendar for even more events you won’t want to miss. On behalf
of all of us here at Central Florida Ag News, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season!
