If you like to grow things, you’ll love Sumter County. Our zone 9 climate is perfect for a wide variety of crops – and the region’s mild winters allow Sumter farmers to grow fresh veggies year-round. Now, thanks to new low-chill varieties developed by the University of Florida, this is also a great place to grow peaches and blueberries.
