Cove Farms was unofficially founded more than twenty years ago when Owner Frank Valcarcel saw a need for organized palm distribution in our small island community. With business and habitation on the rise the industry was ripe for the picking (or planting). Beginning with a modest 1 acre plot of land near the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Cove Farms was destined to become the most popular palm distributor on Pine Island. At Cove Farms, our trees adorn post offices and banks all around Pine Island.
A major undertaking, and the next step in our journey, Cove has been chosen as one of many palm distributors to supply the government with ‘home grown’ plants in an effort to curb the outsourcing trend in American work programs. This is going to make Cove Farms an international agricultural powerhouse.
