Hardee County History

Born in the mid-1800s from the forts erected against the Indian attacks, the central Florida soil that comprises Hardee County today is some of the richest in the world. We are one of the country’s top prime agricultural centers – our abundant produce and prize-winning livestock bring top dollar, our sweet Valencia oranges in constant demand. It’s a legacy of success that’s made Hardee County one of a kind.

“Quality of life” takes on new meaning in a setting where children can walk to neighborhood schools, housing is affordable and appealing, businesses enjoy minimal overhead and optimal labor force and the pace stays somewhere between smooth and steady.

Life in Hardee County means land, lots of it – some 500,000 acres. It means clean air, clean water, safe streets, friendly neighbors, affordable living and “hometown” fun. It’s this one-of-a-kind life that unites the over 28,000 residents of Hardee County in our effort to at once enhance and ensure all this heartland haven has to offer.
