About Bone Valley

Posted by Folk From Polk Community on

The Bone Valley is a region of central Florida, encompassing portions of present-day Hardee, Hillsborough, Manatee, and Polk counties, in which phosphate is mined for use in the production of agricultural fertilizer. Bone Valley is a window to Floridaâs prehistoric past, when massive sharks and whales plied the waters, sharing the stage with land animals like the threetoed horse and giant sloth that are believed to have made the trek to North America from Asia across the Bering Strait land bridge when sea levels were lower.
