    Directions: Take 301 North, turn right onto SR70 East, drive approximately 3 miles and turn left (North) onto Caruso Road. In about half a mile you'll see pastures on the left. Turn left at the fence with red balloons and signs that say King Ranch-Manatee, #4630, and SAF. Go down the lane a spell until you see a couple of barns on your right. Congratulations, you made it!
