Fern Farm

Fern Farm

Date
1985-03-01
Description
Twenty color slides. Images of a typical fern farm owned by Bonnie Jones, located in an area known as the fern belt. The ferns are under plastic wrap to protect them from freezing. Many of the plants are brown from the recent January freeze. Ferns were often used by Mexican Americans as food additives, called herba. In winter 1985, the Bureau joined with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the "St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area" at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
