Few Floridians are probably aware that Florida has the longest history of ranching of any state in the United States and still ranks 12th in the nation in the number of beef cows. Much of the land used for grazing helps maintain a balance between wildlife and plant systems. This rich Florida history is what prompted filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus and his son Nic Stoltzfus to document the 2016 Great Florida Cattle Drive. Since the 1850s Florida cow hunters have been moving cattle across the state. Stoltzfus takes viewers on this historic journey and a glimpse into an almost forgotten past. They captured the stories told around the campfire highlighting the colorful history of all involved in the cattle industry including the Seminole Tribe, Cuban Americans and the cow hunters themselves (the Florida term for cowboy). Viewers will get the chance to “live the history” learning the customs, traditions and heritage that makes Florida such a unique state.
