Great place to sample, buy and ship fresh citrus.

During picking season, you must take the citrus process tour, it is wonderful and really shows you what is going on to process citrus.

We have been in ther area fpr three years and stopped by twice for juice, but never tried the tour. We also have seen other Florida fruit operatiomns, but this place is really a gift fruit company. We got to watch the entire operation during a formal tour which was very well done. A total of about 15 of us... More

Knowledgeable staff made it a very worthwhile experience. It's good to learn how important agriculture is to the area. The samples of oranges and grapefruit were delicious.

Came here twice for honeybelle oranges. Also, bought the unique oranges and ruby grapefruit to take home (up north). Honeybelles are the sweetest and juiciest ever. Did taste them at their stand at the Saturday Farmers Market, too. Did not do the tour, but have it one our list to do next year. Would recommend to everyone.

Thanks for your review! We are a family owned citrus packinghouse, gift shop and grill. We love to have as many "Made in Fort Pierce" products as possible - We carry local Fish SMAK.

Tour the farm, taste the produce, learn about fruit growing. There are many tasty items and fresh packed jellies, homemade fudge and bagged fruit. Sometimes rides into the fields are available and by appointment, groups can have specialty tours with lunch included. Whether a short visit or a longer guided tour, all ages can enjoy the experience.
