They have some of the local grown items but most come from the market, I see no difference from shopping here or the grocery store.

Thank you for taking the time to review Al's Family Farms Citrus. So sorry you were not impressed with our percentage of local fruit in July. Even though this is our off-season, 100% of our citrus varieties- Valencia Oranges, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Unique Oranges, Lemons and freshly-squeezed juice are still locally grown. Peaches start out locally Fort Pierce-grown each March... More

It is really a family operation and you can see how the product is processed. Varied choices for boxing and sending citrus.

Wish I could have eaten lunch there but I was busy running around Hutchinson Island. Nice place to stop, cool honey items and citrus goods.

We needed to send some citrus so visited Al's. We had tried their orange juice and oranges at the Ft. Pierce Farmer's Market so knew they had very good fruit. The gift ordering area is flanked by a fudge counter/gift shop area on one side and a country-store type shop selling produce, etc. on the other. Carol was a joy... More

Al's son Jeff Schorner now runs the family business. It is a well run operation. Although Al passed on in 1987, the place is still being run the old fashioned way paying attention to customer service and giving good value. Everyone who we encountered was pleasant, knowledgeable and friendly. The citrus is still grown in their own groves, hand picked... More
