Orange cream ice cream - yes!

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

Loved our time there! Went out with a bunch of kids, and the tour of the orchard and orange picking was amazing for ournkrthern group. Orange blossoms smelled delicious and the free samples of freshly squeezed juice was delicious too!

Despite stopping by later in the day, they kindly squeezed in a walking tour of the grove and garden for us. Really interesting and those fresh oranges - lovely. We just had to have an orange ice cream to go!

This is a very special orange grove where service is as prime as the homegrown citrus and veggies are! It is a fun place to shop for food gifts as well as everything citrus. Also love the free range chicken and eggs. A huge benefit is the wide assortment of hydroponic vegetables they grow. Want a cabbage? They pick it... More

Went into orchard on a golf cart. Learned about the orange varieties and harvesting processes. Saw trees and the bee hive and hydroponic area where other fruit and vegetables are growing. Store sells their fruit, juices, honey, knick knacks and ice cream made on site. Yummy!

Spent the morning picking (and eating) luscious blueberries and peaches. The owners are great people and go out of their way to make your visit fun. The peaches are the best I've tasted in years. They were juicy and sweet and tasted like a real peach. The blueberries were big and ripe and are great to eat alone or for... More
