Many of life’s failures are from people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up

 Thomas Edison

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal

Henry Ford

These two quotes say much about these two incredible men who are remembered in our community at the beautiful Edison Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. If you have not visited yet, I urge you to take time to go as soon as possible. You will not be disappointed, the grounds and homes are lovely and the many exhibits are fascinating.

When you visit you will also find the latest from Local Coffee + Tea, the Edison Ford Fruit Tea.  An exotic blend of fruits growing in the gardens of the Edison Ford Winter Estates, including mango, pineapple and assorted citrus.  A natural fruit tisane with no caffiene, the Edison Ford Fruit Tea was released before the holiday season and has been very popular with visitors.

The tea is now being brewed and sampled most days as part of the tour.  You will find packets of the Edison Ford Fruit Tea available for sale along with a lovely selection of teapots and other tea accessories.
