Agricultural History

The Foundation of a Family Farm and Continuation of a Legacy:

Blue Sky Farms was established in 1987 by Owner Danny Johns in the heart of "Florida's Potato Capital" Hastings .  His family has cultivated the local land since 1923 when they moved to Florida from their farm in Rockford Illinois.  Innovation is a key component in farming and Danny's great-grandfather exemplified that by becoming "Florida's First Horseless Farm", as shown in this downloadable article from the 1930's edition of 

"Tractor Farming Magazine( pdf)".
