We went with 4 adults and 2 boys (ages 8 &10) and we all loved it. We did the guided tour and learned a lot about FL citrus. We did not eat lunch there. Would highly recommend to others!

We went to Al's family farm for a wonderful and informative tour today. Learned so much about citrus and got to sample fresh squeezed juice and some oranges and grapefruit. We had a great time with our group that ranged in age from 16 to 77. Lunch was excellent with super authentic chicken burritos. We will be back. Thank you... More

Found many items here, place is little advertised. Bought a few different types of jellies and syrups. Little disappointed when you see many of the products are not made locally.

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.

Really enjoyed our visit to Al's Family Farms. It was both educational, interesting, and delicious! Guests were able to see the fruit being processed, and sample fresh squeezed juice and citrus.

Guided Tour of farm and citrus processing plant was well worth & the $8 tour fee; tour lasted 1 hr and gave a great overview of a working citrus operation. The tour include coupons for redemption in the Farm Store for significant discounts of fruit & gifts.

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.
