MICCOSUKKEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
If you need a relaxing break from the day to day, at Redemptive Love Farm in Miccosukee guests can get hands-on with ponies, pigs, horses and llamas.
After losing business during the pandemic, the owner decided to welcome visitors during the summer and make it family-friendly.
Redemptive Love Farm in Miccosukkee is usually booked with birthday parties and field trips for the summer, but the pandemic changed that.
"With a lot of cancellations of birthday parties and field trips, we decided we will just be open for the people who do need to escape," said Shannon Carroll, who owns the farm.
Carroll is welcoming a limited number of guests and offering unique birthday-grams starring local llamas.
"A lot of people talk about, 'Don't get me stuff, get me an experience,'" Carroll said. "It's kind of like a new thing going on, well it's quite the experience."
The farm is open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
