Should You Move To Tequesta Florida?

Tequesta Florida

Are you considering a move? There are lots of wonderful places to choose from in our area.

Should you move to Tequesta Florida?

Off the top of my head, I’m going to say YES! However, if you need a little more persuasion than just me, here are some wonderful things about The Village of Tequesta.

Tequesta, Florida is the most northern town of Palm Beach County. Some parts of Tequesta spill over into Martin County. It’s actually a Village, due to it’s population size of approximately 5,600 people.

There are three types of homes in Tequesta, condos, townhomes and single family homes. There are are large number of homes without an HOA.

Throughout Tequesta there is a variety of community types: Waterfront, Golf Course Views, Wildlife Reserve Views, Cul-de-Sac, Country Club, Gated, Non-Gated and so many more!

Search current homes for sale in Tequesta Florida here.

The Village offers many sponsored events throughout the year, that are free to it’s residents. There is a sense of community here that only comes from small town living. The quiet, palm lined streets, unique small businesses, and friendly neighbors give Tequesta, Florida a real beach town vibe.

From the centrally located Lighthouse Center for the Arts, it’s a quick 3 mile drive to the beautiful Jupiter Inlet.

Grab a coffee at one of the two fantastic coffee houses, located in Tequesta. Oceana Coffee and Perk Coffee House. As well as serving local roasted coffee, both companies offer endless community events and a great way to meet your neighbors!

A great way to see Tequesta is from the waterways. Make your way up the scenic Intracoastal or see the iconic Loxahatchee River. You can rent paddleboards or a boat from Jupiter Pointe Club & Marina. Many homes throughout Tequesta are located on the water and have easy access for many types & sizes of boating and water crafts.

Families love Tequesta Florida, for all of the above things, as well as some very cool amenities available to Village residents.

One of the big favorites for the younger kiddo crowd is Constitution Park. There are 2 playgrounds (separated by age groups), a rock climbing wall,  tree house, walking trail, basketball courts, bicycle parking and so much more. Check out the other parks and facilities located in Tequesta Florida, including a skate park and putting green, here.

Great Schools

Homes in Tequesta on the Palm Beach County side are zoned for Jupiter Schools:

Jupiter Elementary or Limestone Creek Elementary, Jupiter Middle & Jupiter Community High School.

On the Martin County side of Tequesta, students are zoned for Hobe Sound Elementary, Murray Middle & South Fork High School.

New communities are being built all the time, and school information is always changing. If you have specific questions, I’m happy to help. Email me.

Make Your Inner Foodie Happy

I’ve already mentioned two fantastic coffee houses located in Tequesta. There are so many great places to eat and drink, you may never leave!

Here are a few of my personal favorites:

  • Tequesta Brewing Company – The original Craft Brewery in this area. My favorite is Der Chancellor.
  • The Crafty Crust – Brick Oven Pizza & Craft Brews.
  • Hog Snappers – They have a wide variety of sushi, fresh seafood and my favorite Fish Dip! Plenty of Delicious wine & craft beer too.
  • 3 Natives – The original location started here, before they franchised. Wraps, smoothies, cold press juice and more!
  • Lynora’s – Modern Italian Food, and gorgeous venue.

 

What Tequesta Florida Residents Are Saying

-Milka Gordillo owner of DreamallowsSo many things that I ❤️ about our tiny village… I love our Tequesta Park & the events they are constantly creating for residents. It is quiet, small & you easily run into your doctor at the supermarket. It is away from Jupiter yet you can still smell the beach! ❤️

-Jonathan Albert: I love the small town feel. Tequesta is a big as It is ever going to get, and it seems like everyone knows each other and looks out for one another. This was really apparent the day before Hurricane Irma. All day, neighbors were helping each other put up shutters, find gas and load up on ice. That evening, it felt like the whole village was at TBC, blowing off steam. It just felt like a great community.

-Anna Bordner, Blogger at AnnaBordner.com: What I love about living in Tequesta, is that I have this bubble of friends, family, and my favorite places all in one area – our gym, our church, the beach, breweries, good food and good coffee is all close by! I grew up boating, so having easy access to the water is key for our family and is where you’ll find us most weekends!

Jupiter Creamery

The Jupiter Creamery is a family run dairy farm in Jupiter Farms, Florida.

First of all, who can resist the face of an adorable dairy cow? Not me! Secondly, this hard working family makes it easy for the public to get milk, locally. Read the blog to learn more about their awesome adventure and make sure to save the date for one of their Cow Washes!

Jupiter Creamery Cows

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Suzie, I live in Jupiter Farms with my everlastingly patient and supportive husband, Rodney. We have two children, a brutally honest four year old girl and a naked outdoor enthusiast two year old son. I grew up in Pennsylvania. My Grandfather John Bartram was a long time family Orchard grower. But due to a heart attack and having five daughters and no sons the family farm had to be sold to developers, and was just a suburb when I grew up. My husband and I moved from Australia, where he grew up, to Jupiter farms in 2003. But we did not start farming until 2008.

Jupiter Creamery Logo

When and why did you start the Jupiter Creamery?

We started first with chickens, ducks and turkeys, moved up to pigs and then beef cows. It was not until I was pregnant with our daughter did I think about how much milk we drink. I knew I was going to need a milk cow or two! So I asked a farmer friend of mine on how to get a quality animal. Good advice was to buy an older cow and she will teach me how to milk. True to form, my old gal cow did break me in as easily as she could. At first I was overwhelmed but every day it got easier. But what do you do with four gallons a milk a day? So that led to again leaning on my friend to tell me how to legally sell raw milk in Florida and how to join organizations like the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund. So shortly after Jupiter Creamery was formed.

For those unfamiliar with the RAW lifestyle, what are the benefits of raw milk?

Legally hard to answer this one because under Florida law raw milk is not for human consumption. Most of my research was with the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Campaign for Real Milk.

Jupiter Creamery Family Photo

Who makes up the Jupiter Creamery crew?

Right now I milk three cows every morning. The calves get the rest of the milk, straight from their mothers during the day. I have a few friends that have helped so we can go on holiday every once and a while. And of course my friends that took over milking while I gave birth to our son are amazing and I can not thank them enough!

What do you find most challenging about running your own business?

I never approached Jupiter Creamery as a for profit business, its definitely an avocation. Right now I use the sales from milk to pay for the supplemental feed of our animals and maintenance of our fences and irrigation. Having a grass fed dairy I am also focusing on improving our pasture, and also maximizing productivity utilizing intensive rotational grazing. We do not use any chemical fertilizers or herbicides on any of our pasture.

What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?

Right now the most rewarding part of having cows is to watch my children interact with them, feeding a calf a bottle or getting a rough cow tongue “kiss” after a brush or a hand feed.

What do you do on your days off?

Days off are spent at the beach or playing soccer. Hanging out with friends and their kids.

How do you juggle work & family?

I could not do what I am doing without the support of my husband. He makes breakfast and entertains kids while I milk, he maintains all the equipment and is always there to help. When I need to change or improve pastures or milking procedures.

Jupiter Creamery Cow

Where can we find The Jupiter Creamery online?

I have a Facebook page Jupiter Creamery. I try to put photos and what milk products I have available on the Facebook page. Also upcoming events to wash or feed the cows. Save The Date | November 5th | Pumpkin Feeding: Open Farm! Come and feed the cows and pigs your Halloween pumpkins. Swing by all day with any hay or pumpkins to pet and hand feed the cows.

Thank you for sharing your story and your images, Suzie!
