This visitor center closes for the summer months so this was the last few days left open( end of May ) - interesting history of the Florida Orange Juice , got to taste some juice, worth a trip just little north of # 60 on route # 27.

A very interesting visitor center. The best thing is that it's free. You get free samples of orange juice and orange popcorn.

Located across the Florida Orange plant/factory along US 27, this little shack have videos and interesting stuff that tells the story of the plant. Souvenirs and juices abound for sale.

Sample some free orange juice and see how its produced, from the grove to the consumer. Right across from the enormous packaging plant of Florida's Natural, you get a close up view of the whole thing in a video show, and can walk among the orange trees outside the door. Lots more.

This cute cabin with a large porch is so inviting that it is difficult not to stop! Inside is every thing you might to take back home as small gifts for your friends - all to do with oranges! In the back room is a theater with a virtual tour of the Florida's Natural Orange Juice Processing Plant which is... More

Help looked like they were bored to tears. Answered my questions, but answers were very short. Maybe they were having a bad day, so I won't judge them for just one visit. Great juice, but I like Simply Orange better. Florida Natural is a little too bitter.

This is a good place to stop, stretch and learn about the citrus industry. It's also a good place to try new products Florida Natural is marketing (to purchase also). There is a nice museum, a presentation on the citrus industry and a gift shop. Although I don't live here several times I've brought someone visiting the area for the... More

Four of us stopped here on our way to Bok Tower. We thought that the movie was great. Yes, it was definitely a Florida Natural commercial, but it was educational and well-done. The attendant historical and scientific explanations were extremely interesting. But, the best part of our stop was the delicious samples of Florida Natural products. The gift shop was... More

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.
