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

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

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
