This place is a joke. We walked in and there wasn't a person in sight. We walked back to where the fruit was and it was disgusting. I don't know how long the oranges had been laying there but there were fruit flies all over them. Don't waste your time or money!

This place is filthy and scary. Full of Banana spiders and the animals look like they need medical attention. Very sad. I would never bring my children there again.

This was my first trip ever to an orange grove. I was completely in awe. I was raised on a farm, but this is totally different from anything I have ever seen. Inside the store was so much cool stuff. Alot was tourist nick nacks...typical of a roadside tourist attraction. But I love that kind of thing! They had old... More

Visited this mid-Dec 2014 - absolutely worth it. Very reasonably priced. The zoo has so many different animals and birds. Lot of effort has been made by the owners to make it a top-notch attraction. Interacting with so many animals and birds was a dream come true. Highly recommended

This is a very nice place for all ages. The store has all kinds of unique things to see and buy and there are themed rooms. The zoo is awesome, very large. You will see a lot of different animals. You can even feed them. You can even play 18 holes of miniature golf. I love this place and can't... More

Used to go there for oranges, juice, to send citrus to friends/family. Little zoo in back was cute for the kids. It has certainly seen better days, dirty, depressing, citrus gotten expensive and limited. Forget about the free fruit if you send a package, nothing generous about this place anymore - no idea what happened, but it's not a fun... More

It was super fun. Definitely old. But the animals seem happy and it was a blast for a couple of bucks. You can feed most any of the animals they have. They even provide you with bread and food for them for like $4. Good cheap fun.

My daughter and I absolutely LOVE going to Boyettes Grove. We go several times a year and it is never the same with each visit. Okay, let's address complaints from other reviewers. Yes, I agree it could use some cleaning up, however, the clutter and utter "randomness" just adds to its old time charm. I also agree it can feel... More

This was the most heart breaking "zoo" I've ever been to. The authorities need to close it down and rescue the animals. The pig has an awful skin condition, many animals seem to be starving! The gators homes are deplorable. The snapping turtle's aquarium hasn't been cleaned in who knows how long. I will have many sleepless nights after this... More

My experience here was an extremely awful one. I will start by saying that I do understand that these animals have been donated but I will also state the very obvious of what I saw. Every animal that I laid my eyes on here looked miserable. There was a spider monkey who must've recently lost one eye and was left... More
