A real Florida family owned Orange grove. Fresh picked or pick yourself. Doesn't get better than this. Great and unusual varieties. I buy all of my citrus here. The only thing I don't care for is the fresh squeezed orange juice. To me it tastes...More

They have a nice selection of local fruit. The Honeybells were in season when we went and we picked up a couple to take home. They also have a little boutique where they sell local (Florida produced) jams and jellies. They have a sampling area...More

We were there for less than one hour. We were picking Honeybells on the first day they were ready to pick. Very juicy and sweet. Got one full bag for $25 - 25-30 oranges in the bag. Well worth it and they had other varieties...More

Wish Joe was as sweet as the Honeybells we picked today! Awesome fruit. Great samples, but Nothing worse than a rude staff on a family vacation. The girl inside was very nice, and Ziggy was very helpful and friendly. Joe...take it from Ziggy..SMILE!

According to their facebook page, their current hours are 10am-4pm Monday-Saturday. They are a seasonal operation and will be shutting down soon, maybe May? Call them to ask.
