We visited today with business group and absolutely loved the blueberry ice cream, butter pecan ice cream and the orange juice. Excellent customer service. Beautiful groves!

Very annoyed. Travelled 45mins round trip to the Ice Cream shop to be met with a shuttered up shop and a sign saying see you in the fall. Some very upset children. Both Ridge Islands website and Google say the shop is open today.

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.

We stayed at westgate town center and from that point it is 22.1 miles and takes around 26 minutes depending on traffic. Well worth a visit.

We have Oranges that are ready to be picked, but Peaches will not be available until May. We also have Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice that's delicious. You can also tour the packing house and see how we wash and pack fruit.
