What they grow:
- Yellow Squash
La Herradura Farm
La Herradura Farm is located in Estero, FL and owned by Hermilo Tello Sr. In 1992 he decided to buy some old farm tractors and equipment to start his own farming.
It all began in Naples with 50 acres and a leap of faith. He now grows 200 acres in Estero, FL since 2001.
The Farm is operated by his son Hermilo Tello Jr, daughter in law Alma Tello and his two grandsons Benny and Emilo Tello. Along the years we’ve grown a variety of crops from Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Watermelon, Peppers, Egg Plant and Cucumbers, but our faith stayed with the Squash. Now we solely grow Zucchini and Yellow Squash. La Herradura Farm grows 200 acres of Zucchini and Yellow Squash throughout the season to provide fresh quality to the consumer.
