We went to Ridge Island Groves to January. This is the only month when you can purchase honeybells. The store is connected to the orchard and you can see fresh citrus on the trees, being picked, and delivered to the farm store. There are many varieties of citrus fruit - all clearly labeled and priced. There are different sizes of... More

Saw the reviews about this place and just had to visit. Went on the tour and it was so worth it. Found out so much about orange cultivation as well as peaches, blueberries and strawberries! Our guide/ driver Jackie was brilliant, particularly with our 4 year old who found a new friend. Loved being able to pick fruit straight from... More

They have the best Ice Cream hands down. I prefer the coconut, but the Superman and orange soft serve are really good too. All of their jellies are yummy. They have organic eggs, meat, produce and fruit, besides just the normal tourist stuff.

Great grapefruit and various varieties of oranges. Love the samples before you buy. Like to support locally raised fruits and produce.

My friend and I visited recently, what a pleasant surprise. I purchased red navel oranges, peaches, tomatoes, blueberries, all delicious. The staff was very helpful, and the place was very clean. I would definitely visit again, what a gem..... oh, and the fresh squeezed juice, awesome.. 🍊🍊

Was looking for a farm market or u-pick and saw this on Tripadvisor so decided to check it out. Staff was very friendly in the market and we paid $8 a piece to go on a half-hour tour of the operation. Dale was a very entertaining tour guide, cracking us up while telling us all about their hydroponics operation and... More

We were in search of some fresh squeezed orange juice when we found this place. It is off the beaten path, but was a fun surprise. The kids picked strawberries for the first time. We got 2 baskets of u-pick strawberries, 5 oranges, 2 containers of blueberries, 10 ears of fresh corn on the cob, a cucumber, 3 sweet potatoes,... More

Fabulous farm shop with citrus fruits and samples of all to try, citrus magic air freshener which is amazing, jams, pickles, jellies, sweets and delicious soft serve ice cream (orange, orange/vanilla or strawberry) for only $2.50 plus tax for a massive cup. Friendly staff. Walk around the groves and see how the fruit is harvested and sorted. A great place... More

Friends said this was the best place for oranges so we stopped in. Oranges are delicious, but the soft orange dream ice cream was heavenly.

We homeschool our son and thought this would be a great field trip while on vacation . We arrived and signed up for the 45 minute tour. Very reasonable at $8.00. It was a great learning experience for our son and we enjoyed seeing the process of an orange going from being picked off the tree and the washing, waxing,... More
