"CREATING COMMUNITY AROUND FOOD."
Crisafulli Groves has been in existence since the early 1900’s when Life Recaptured Co-Founder, Chuck Crisafulli's Grandfather, Carmelo Crisafulli, settled in Merritt Island, Florida and began to plant what would become some of the premier citrus fruit in the world! Chucks Grandpa and Grandma were known as Nona and Noni, as the family are Italian. All of Nona and Noni’s children continued in the citrus business with some grandchildren still invested in the Florida Citrus industry.
Chuck’s Dad and Mom’s, hard work and their faith in God, has left a family legacy of awesome oranges, grapefruit and specialty fruit that are offered for sale. For many of our customers, their box of Crisafulli Groves fruit is a staple under the Christmas Tree or on the Thanksgiving table. Chuck remembers all the uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. coming over to Aunt Mary and Uncle Ben’s for the holidays and we’d all be walking around the yard with tangerine, or navel or grapefruit juice running all over our chins and down our arms, seriously, it doesn’t get much better than that! The legacy of Crisafulli Groves from our Grandparents, Mom and Dad is our desire to be a blessing to God’s work, it’s only fitting that we can be the backbone of Life Recaptured!
The Crisafulli Groves Farmer’s Market idea flourished and is realized out of this historic sense of family and community. Supporting Life Recaptured is paramount for the Crisafulli Groves Farmer’s Market efforts to give back to the community and those in need; specifically helping survivors of human trafficking. It is our hope and desire that the Crisafulli Groves Farmer’s Market creates a community around locally grown produce; a country “Town Square” where locals can mix and mingle and act like citizens, neighbors, and friends.
Buy Fresh, Buy Local!
