The operators of a Winter Park dairy farm are in the market for a developer to turn their 14-acre homestead into a residential community.

The couple believe the building boom that has gripped Central Florida for the last several years may soon show signs of waning, along with the economy.

"Now is the time to sell," said David Green, who, along with his wife, Dawn, is positioning the property for sale. "We remember the financial crisis of 2008 and real estate is very cyclical."

The Greens are leaning toward developers that do more upscale work, but are not locked into the style. They say the parcel could accommodate at least 20 homes.

They're now going through the rezoning process with Seminole County planners to have their agriculturally-designated land changed for residential use.

The couple has supplied milk and cheese to the area for over a decade, while also boarding horses at their property, which is located northwest of Howell Branch Road and the Park Vale Boulevard intersection.

With the land backing up to Lake Florence, the Greens say they've already picked out a name for the development: Lake Florence at Winter Park.
