While visting we heard of the "Grove House" on Route 27 outside Lake Wales. Lovely building backing up to a beautiful lake across the road from the Florida's Natural plant. Well done videos and movie, artifacts, displays and other material showing the history and development of the citrus industry. Free samples of juices and gift shop sells items--food, juices, etc....

Stopped here coming from Bok tower when we spotted the free tours sign. The smell of the Orange blossoms outside was fantastic! The free samples of juice were good and the video was informative. Nice little gift shop and friendly people.

This is a nice place for a quick stop to learn a bit about Florida's citrus industry. It has a nice gift shop with samples of various juices produced at the factory.

As we entered three people were behind the counter and one said, "there are samples at the end of the counter if you are interested" then they went back to talking among themselves. Yes, there is a movie to watch and a little gift area, but nothing else. What a disappointment, after driving out of our way to go there.... More

Thought we would get a tour of the plant, but it was an informative movie. Only issue was there was no one to answer any questions that the movie didn't address. Like what does "blank pasturized" mean. how long do the trees produce?, What kinds of orange trees are grafted to what kind of orange tree? Just an example. Is... More

The Grove House is set up like a cabin with big porch and wood floors so you feel like you are stepping into the country. The video gives good information about the juicing process and the pictures of Florida Natural's history are interesting to look at. The gift store isn't too big but has a good selection. Don't miss the... More

I was hoping for a tour of the juice plant. But there was only the visitor center. None-the-less, there were quite a few informative videos including a 14 minute movie in the theater about how the juice is produced from oranges. It might have been a bit self-serving, but it was informative just the same. The displays are set up... More

We stop by to learn a little bit about growing fruit and learned more about the Florida natural brand in the cooperative that runs it and anything else. There is a museum that talks about the history citrus in Florida. There is also a self-promotional 14 minute movie that was not too bad. The best part was the free samples... More

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
