Nice, friendly and helpful staff. We ordered FRESH Honeybell Orange Juice which you don't get everywhere. There are samples of the different types of oranges as well as different samples and flavors of homemade fudge. We left with Orange Juice and several flavors of fudge.

The tour is fun, only an hour, and you get a taste (pardon the pun) of how fruit is picked, sorted, and packaged. Samples are given of several varieties

We enjoyed our visit. Our tour was fun and informative. Shari and Chrissy did an excellent job telling us about the operation and about Indian River fruits. The freshly-squeezed orange juice was DELICIOUS as were the samples, especially the honey bells. Definitely worth a visit!
