Klass Act Acres started as part of Wooster Tree farm in the mid-1970's. We are located on what was the headquarters for the 150-acre farm.
We continue to raise Pigmy Date Palms as field grown trees and in containers. To meet todays market demands, we have added several other varieties of palms along with other ornamentals.
Kelly first started riding in 1970 in Colorado, mostly trail riding around Colorado Springs. She moved to Florida in 1974 and switched to hunt seat - jumping up to 4 ft courses. She also trained to show 2nd level dressage - but her trainers horse developed back problems and that had to be put on hold. In 1990, she purchased UF Klass Act from the University's Horse Teaching Unit - where she had volunteered for the previous three years.
During the early 1990's she trained with well-known Paso Fino breeder and with a top Plantation Shod Tennessee Walker trainer.
Kelly and Klass Act competed in lower level dressage, lots of trail riding, were awarded their colors fox hunting, and passed Parelli Level 2 (the original levels). UF Klass Act is now 29 and still very healthy - although mostly retired. We have raised several foals and cared for mares through difficult pregnancies (foundered mare came through the resuce system).
John has driven semi's for years and owned his own transportation business, specializing in oversize loads. He has trailered many rescue missions for a large Palm Beach rescue and helped many local horse owners make smaller moves.
We have had our flock for two years now and enjoy watching them everyday. Their eggs are available at most of the area's Green Markets.
Raising livestock and plants is difficult in this tropical area. We use pesticides and bring in fertilizer as infrequently as possible. Since we rarely have hard freezes, the weeds, bacteria and insects sometimes need help to stay under control.
We now offer hatching eggs for sale.
