As a native south Floridian and lifelong resident, I have always enjoyed "old Florida". Although I have lived in Jupiter since 1991, my family and I didn't move to Jupiter Farms until 2000. Since that time we have enjoyed the unspoiled beauty of the area and the Jupiter Farms Residents group is largely responsible for protecting our way of life.
Each month, they publish a small newspaper, The Jupiter Farmer, and distribute it free to all JF residents. You can visit them at: http://www.jupiterfarmer.com/.
To borrow some text from their website, here's who and what they do for all of us:
Jupiter Farms Residents, Inc. is a civic organization that along with The Jupiter Farmer, keeps residents informed of events and issues of concern to Farms residents. JFR was organized in the early nineties when many Farms residents opposed a regional shopping center that was suggested for the property on which the Jupiter Farms Shopping Center has been built. The founding members of JFR were instrumental in getting the proposed center downsized, operating hours appropriate for the Farms area, and architectural guidelines for country style buildings suitable for the rural community were established.JFR has been and will always be committed to furthering and preserving the country life style of the Farms. Farms residents cherish the open space around their homes. They want to be able to see the stars at night. They want the privilege of having horses and farm animals, chickens and ducks on their properties. Many residents favor the Swales to Trails concept, a project of Jupiter Farms Environmental Council, that is being developed in conjunction with the ever expanding greenway areas connecting preserved lands. Farms residents like seeing the hawks, owls, waterfowl and songbirds in their yards.To help preserve this rural lifestyle, JFR and The Jupiter Farmer bring the issues to the residents, collect the opinions, thoughts and ideas of the residents and forward these comments to the County, South Indian River Water Control District (SIRWCD), and other government entities.
Hardly a day goes by that we don't take note of what a special place Jupiter Farms is.
