Monthly Payments

Due to the sudden, unexpected cancelation of our contract for account management services by Associated Billing Services, electronic payments (credit/debit) card payments cannot be accepted by the association – temporarily.

Temporarily – payments can only be accepted by check or money order, mailed to the MFPOA, PO Box 1289, Crystal River, Florida 34423.

The Board, your Board, is working diligently to arrange for account management services to be provided to the Association.

We, the Board, will do everything within our abilities to keep everyone informed with regards to this situation and thank everyone for their patience, understanding and cooperation.

While it will ultimately be a decision that the Board must make as a Board, I am confident that if this situation results in a delay of the annual assessments being mailed, then there would be a reasonable extension of the payment due date.  

If you have any specific questions regarding the association’s finances, feel free to e-mail me as the treasurer at dan@citrusminifarms.com, the President atJon@citrusminifarms.com or any Board member that you are comfortable communicating with.

Please check the Mini Farms Official Web Site for the latest official information –www.citrusminifarms.com 

Once again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation

About Us

Mini Farms is an unrecorded subdivision consisting of 947 parcels, ranging in size from 1 – 10 acres in N.W. Citrus County, FL. Both site-built and mobile homes may be found on our wooded sand hills. Situated roughly half-way between Crystal River (5 mi.) and Dunnellon (7 mi.), Mini Farms is bordered on the west by County Road 495 (Citrus Ave.), and on the east and south by Citrus Springs and Pine Ridge.

The Mini Farms Property Owners’ Association (MFPOA) was established in November 1975 by Context Development Corporation of Miami for the purpose of maintaining the roads and associated easements within the Mini Farms development. Context developed Mini Farms during the first wave of development associated with the construction of the nuclear power plant in Crystal River by (then) Florida Power Corporation. The property, known locally as the “oak fields” had been owned by the Bowie family and had been used for generations for hunting and cattle grazing.

In 1978, Context Corporation turned the MFPOA over to the various owners and a few “pioneer” residents along with a rudimentary system of rutted dirt roads and paths. Over the years, as Mini Farms slowly grew in both area and population, the MFPOA has expanded and improved the road system; turning miles of dirt paths into lime rocked and paved road.

The roads and associated easements are maintained by the MFPOA for the benefit of its members and are maintained by an annual assessment as set by the board of directors. The easements total 36.25 miles. The Association also maintains some 3.5 miles of non-MFPOA roadway to provide members with better ingress/egress to the Mini Farms.

Assessments are developed annually in September by the Budget Committee and submitted to the Board of Directors for approval. Assessment notices are due on January 1 and are delinquent after January 31 of each year. Delinquent assessments may result in a lien against the parcel and an additional $25 administrative late fee plus interest 9% per annum. Unsatisfied liens may result in referral to the MFPOA attorney for foreclosure.

The Board of Directors consists of 7 members who serve terms of 3 years each on a rotating basis. At the annual meeting in March of each year, the new Board elects the officers for that year. The officers are: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Board members, excluding the President, may serve as multiple officers.

The Association contracts with a property accounts manager whose duties include collections, billing, banking, and maintaining property ownership records.
