Absolutely beautiful. Garden tour amazing. Everyone is super friendly. Very knowledgeable. The property very clean and we'll kept. Stories of historical hurricanes that many plants and trees survived. They have great prices on a wide selection of orchids to buy and take home.

As part of the National Association of Produce Market Manager conference we visited R.F. Orchids in Homestead. What a first class tour and facilities. I definitely recommend as a tour and a place to buy special orchids.
