Swallowtail Farm held its 5th annual country fair at its farm just north of Alachua on Saturday.
The event ran from 12:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m. and saw an outpouring of community support. Daily Green, Humble Pie, Jersey’s Creamery, Off The Griddle and Swamp Head Brewery provided numerous food and drink options to attendees.
There were farm tours, numerous workshops and both a pie- and cookie-baking contest. However, the main attraction was the stage that saw Shena Groger, Hard Luck Society, Tierra Libre, Nook & Cranny, Ricky Kendall & The Healers, MSNRA and the Captive Eddies perform throughout the day, with festival goers hooping, dancing and singing along.

Florida's citrus season will produce enough oranges to fill 81.5 million 90-pound boxes this year, down nearly 16 percent from the prior season. A major cause for the decrease in oranges has been citrus greening, a disease that is deadly to the crop.
