This is a small visitor center for a very large company., Florida's Natural Orange Juice. When you step out of your car, you will immediately be surrounded by the scent of oranges! The building itself is surrounded by many different citrus trees which are labeled so you know what they are. The rocking chairs on the porch were a nice... More

I enjoyed visiting the gift shop to find things to bring home to friends and family. they have several short videos about the company showing how they work with the environment and they are actually a farmer co-op. It was nice to learn these things, but not exactly exciting.My daughter was a bit board, but she enjoyed tasting the orange... More

Since I live around here, I decided to pay them a visit. It was fun. Upon parking, I noticed there were dozens of orange trees growing around the lot. Each set of different trees is labeled by a plaque stuck in the ground. The Grove House itself was a quaint little log cabin-looking place. Just outside the front doors, there... More

We were passing through on our way to Key West from Orlando and happened to see this museum. Although it was small, the staff was really friendly and they had many displays to look at. I especially enjoyed the free samples of juice. The mango- orange flavor was excellent and it was a great cold drink on a balmy day.... More

I am going to brag a bit about this place which was easy to find on Rt 27 in Lake Wales, an area that I had never visited in Florida before this "house-hunting" trip....the staff was interested in me as a visitor to the point of taking the time to introduce me to the visitor center, its many fun displays...

Our family makes a point of finding factory/company tours when we travel to other states. We have two kids 8-9 yrs. This one was not super exciting for any of us. Very small and not able to see any "real" working action. The visitor center is across the road from the actual factory and company. The 14 minute video was... More

When we were driving through all the orange groves in the area, we had a lot of questions. We stopped here to have them all answered. The short film was very informative. We enjoyed this place. There were different orange trees on the property to view and their growing season. We also enjoyed sampling the different flavored juices. We also... More

Not only do you get to sample some of the best juices in Florida, but the staff has all the information about oranges you may want to know. The 20 minute video gives you a real good idea of what it takes to grow a crop of oranges and process them into juice. They waste none of the orange. Juice,... More

Like everyone has said this is a nice little free stop off. We watched the movie, looked around, and sampled juice. They had some oj/fruit juice blends we can't get in our area which were very good. They let my kids go out and pick valencia oranges from the trees around the grove house. They ladies in the house were... More
