For the next 35 years Frank expanded Long & Scott Farms to 1,200 acres as they produced Zellwood Sweet Corn, pickling cucumbers and both red & green cabbage, along with a variety of other produce. Following the sale of the Apopka muck farms in 1998, Billy Long moved on to retirement, while Frank Scott semi-retired. He still oversees operations at the farm each day, while his son Hank now manages the farm. Frank's daughter, Rebecca Scott Ryan manages Scott's Maze Adventures and his youngest son Marks, who also once worked at the farm, manages his own nursery, PlowBoys Horticulture,along with his wife, Mary. Hank's children, Sonny and Haley represent the 4th generation of the Scott family's farming tradition and they remain proud of their history and land which they have overseen for close to 54 years and counting. Frank has three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, they keep him going! As he says, he is " a very blessed person".
