The Bucs have teamed up with a Plant City farm for a tasty new drink this season. The Bucs teamed up with Keel Farms for their Pirate Punch Cider. Also, the farm will make a blueberry and strawberry sangria for game day.
The blueberry and strawberry sangria are called the “Tampa 2” after the Bucs famous “Tampa 2” defense started by head coach Tony Dungy.
Presently, Clay Keel owns Keel Farms, which was started by his father in 1981. Clay said of working at the farm “It was a working farm, so I did a lot of weeding, I did a lot of potting, putting plants into pots 2,000 times a day.”
He said that he has been a Bucs fan because his grandfather took him to games when he was younger. He said, “My grandfather, he used to take me to the Bucs games in the 80s, in the 90s. So it brings back a lot of good memories.”
Keel Farms is having a release party for the new drinks this Saturday, August 27, at 3 p.m. They are located at 5202 Thonotosassa Road in Plant City.
Very cool that the Bucs have teamed up with a Plant City farm for these new drink options at Raymond James Stadium this year.
