Nice local farm with market and grill. Had the bbq pork sandwich, delicious. Obviously the orange juice is a must try, also delicious and super fresh. There is a nice little park for children to play in, and they also offer tours of the farm and operation. I will definitely be back if I'm ever in the area.

Walking into the produce store, it was very clean. Usually you notice a lot of flies or bugs in places like this but not here. The people was very friendly and helpful. The products they carry are for all kinds of nationalities. I mean they have stuff I never heard of before. Their prices are excellent and well worth it... More

This is a fun way to spend a few hours. Many nice helpful people. Learn something about a working produce and citrus farm. Fun time. Not an exciting place for children but a fun relaxed setting. Many things to do and see and learn about Florida agriculture.

The fruit is fresh and delicious, and employees are super friendly and helpful. Stop by the Red Barn Grill for breakfast or lunch (the chicken quesadilla is AWESOME). The kids' area by the Grill is adorable - very creative activities for little ones to play and learn.
