Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media!

An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
