We drove to Arcadia about 30 miles south of Wauchula to visit Joshua Citrus grove that consists of 300 acre various types of citrus. Eve was our tour guide, they have 8 workers from Mexico who come back each year, they are reimbursed for their travel to and from Mexico, their room is provided either on the farm or in town. The 8 workers will usually earn upwards of $500 to $700 a week and they will fill one semi truck load in a day. We then drove to Joshua Creek Cemetry where we saw a very unusual grave stone, a full life image of a very respected Arcadian. He lived life his way!
