David Does It: Kirby Family Farm train ride

Posted: Updated:

A Central Florida farm is hosting what it's calling the world's largest Easter egg hunt.

The Kirby Family Farm's family-friendly event will include bounce houses, food vendors, live entertainment and a visit from the Easter bunny.
Gates open at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 23.

The farm is also home to Florida's longest private railroad at almost 1.5 miles. Owners Daryl and Tracy Kirby said they found an old steam locomotive and five cars in the woods, restored them and laid down track on their 177 acres.

"I found it in the woods, covered in weeds. The plan was to scrap it," Daryl Kirby said.

"It was lost and forgotten for 12 years," Tracy Kirby said.

The train seats 350 people.

The Kirby Family Farm is at 19630 NE 30th Street in Williston. Go to KirbyFarm.com or call 352-812-7435 for details.
