About Us

Green Acres Sporting Goods has a long history in Jacksonville. Founded by John Farhat in 1970, and now managed by his son Abraham (Abie) Farhat, Green Acres is a family-owned business – and a family-operated business, too. On your first visit, you’ll note the family resemblance as brothers and cousins in the Farhat Family work throughout the store – along with other family relatives.

Green Acres is a true hunter’s and sportsman’s store – and each staff member is an avid sportman (and sportswoman). Each transaction is also guided by one of our professionals, who can back up their knowledge with actual hands-on experience in the field.

The store has been located on Normandy Boulevard, about one mile west of Interstate 295, since its opening more than 48 years ago. Green Acres has expanded over time – adding new products and product lines to keep pace with customer requests and the growing popularity of hunting and fishing. 

The company prides itself on customer satisfaction, serving clients in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
