Zembower, 53, and other Chuluota residents are now concerned that a plan to build nearly 5,000 homes in the Lake Pickett Road area in adjacent Orange County will bring thousands of additional cars into that corner of Seminole County, spoil the waterways and clear the way for more development. To do this, Orange County commissioners would have to rezone the land to allow more houses.

Farmers Market and Petting Farm

What is GOOD NEIGHBORS FARMERS MARKET and how does it work

Good Neighbors Farmers Market is a farmers market that provides not only agricultural products to the community, but provides the knowledge by which a great deal of the products was produced. The farmers market is located on an actual small farm and is set up much like a traditional market would be. There are Vendors selling products such as fruits and veggies, honey, foods, handmade products, and just about anything agricultural.

The biggest difference between Good Neighbors Farmers Market and other farmers markets would be that we provide a look at real farm animals like one would see on a real farm. After shopping for your weekly products in the market, one can walk and tour 15 acres of livestock and veggie gardens. Whether you want to see pigs, cows, chickens, goats, turkeys or a vegetable garden; here at Good Neighbors you can do it. If you want an even closer look at the animals you can opt for a guided tour of the farm for a small fee.

Controversial Chuluota church now up for sale

Denied efforts to expand, Cornerstone Baptist seeks new home

After years of struggle with the neighboring Chuluota community and multiple attempts to expand, it appears the Cornerstone Baptist Church is ready to move on.

Last year, a door was closed on the Cornerstone Baptist Church when the Seminole County Board of Adjustment denied the church’s request for expansion. But now that the church has been put up for sale, the opportunity to move into a bigger building may open up.

“I think if they sell the church for what they’re asking, they have a darn good chance of moving to a bigger parcel [of land],” said Deborah Schafer, a member of the Chuluota Community Association.
