Travelers are often culinary pilgrims, seeking new places and experiences to share on social media. Polk County is the perfect market for these foodies, with its unique heritage of cattle, citrus, and agriculture.

With its unique heritage of cattle, citrus and agriculture, Polk’s food scene may have had a humble beginning but soon stretched past its borders.

That unique blend even went to infinity and beyond, when Moon Soup from historic Chalet Suzanne found its way to the moon.
