DAVIE, Fla. — Florida Crackers: The Cattlemen and Cowboys of Florida, produced by the Self Discovery Production Team, is an 87-minute, high quality documentary and the only feature-length movie about the Florida cracker cattle culture produced by a man raised in the culture, who grew up as a working cowboy on a ranch near Fort Pierce, Fla.
Florida Crackers tells the story of this state’s little-known cattle culture, which dates back to 1521, when Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon landed in Florida and introduced the first cattle and horses to North America, thus setting the stage for the first American cowboys and the cattle industry.
In the film the crackers tell their own story unscripted and in their own words. Filmed on several working ranches in Florida’s pristine cattle country, the film provides an exclusive inside view into the Florida crackers lifestyle while also showcasing Florida’s unique natural environment and wildlife.
The movie is $19.95 and available for purchase at www.SelfDiscoveryProductions.com.
