Chiefland family farm recognized for longevity

By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Like any good country boy growing up in these parts, Newnan Sanchez knows firsthand about the circle of life, about nature’s delicate balance and how people once lived more harmoniously with the land.
“I hate to see a lot of Old Florida disappearing,” the 69-year-old Chiefland native said, swaying gently in a rocking chair on the porch of an old cabin where his aunt and uncle once lived. “When I grew up, it was one of the smaller states in the Southeast.”
Sanchez, who grew up on a 400-acre farm just east of Chiefland, said he’s dismayed to see so many of the state’s small family farms bought out by large corporations or turned in to housing developments and strip malls.
