On occasion, cows can be seen roaming freely around Hog Hammock, grazing on grasses and weeds in the isolated community. While this may seem a random occurrence, it is actually a sustainable practice dating back hundreds of years and the cows’ ramblings aren’t unknown to their owners.

Just outside Hog Hammock is the community of Johnson Hammock, barely distinguishable but hauntingly beautiful in its own special way. It’s characterized by numerous old moss-covered oaks.
