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

We visited this "attraction" because we had fond memories from many, many years ago. It had a new sign on route 50 which brought back pleasant times. The gifts are the same gifts that were there then! I don't think they had been moved. Empty soda bottles and coffee cups were in displays around the store. It was dirty -... More

Shop here for Citrus of all kinds through the year. When the weather has been right for the citrus, I have had some of the best sweet & juiciest in the area.Very Friendly service.There is plenty to see with animal farm, old fashioned candy, unusual jams & jellies, antique collection.

I went there to get some fresh, homegrown oranges and grapefruit but was surprised at everything else there. There store is like taking a step back in time. Antique lovers would go crazy. You can buy candy, jams, and ice cream. Kids would love the animal farm and dinosaur cave. If you are in the area this is a must... More

As many others here have stated, this "attraction" can be good or bad. The good is that you can wonder around and see "old" items for nothing, pay a small fee and see some real animals and round out the trip with a soda or a serving of ice cream. The negative side is that it needs some cleaning and... More

I took my 11 year old grand daughter to this attraction. The write up in the Tampa Bay Times gave me the impression that this excursion would be worth while. To say it ws horrible would be too strong. It is poorly organized. It is old and in dire need of upgrade. Although the owner's are sincere and want you... More
