Arrive at an Old Time Farm Store & Market and sample locally made sauces, jams, jellies, honey, and tasty treats while preparing for your adventures in the grove. Grab a guide map and select your very own fruit directly from the trees! You can also comfortably tour through the 2500 acre Estate on the world largest 4×4 vehicle.

You may drop by thinking you will just pick up a bag of incredibly fresh fruit but realize hours later that you have spent the entire day with us walking through the grove, taking in the fragrance of Orange Blossoms and strolling along the waterfront grounds. That’s the way we like it! You will have the opportunity to relax, enjoy, bond, and create fond memories with family during your visit.
