Great for kids!

We loved the tour, especially the animals. My kids fed the fish in the pond and loved walking around the gardens. Ice cream was delicious, and fruit fresh. Thank you!

We stopped at Pirates City, and were talking to one of the volunteers there, and we asked about things to see while we were in Bradenton, and he said to visit your store. He told us about the delicious ice cream you make, and about the tour. We did not have enough time for the tour, but we did have... More

Really enjoyed the visit. A family business that is proactive in including the comunity and people from around the world in thw process of growing fruit. The store bring the products to life and a taste of the actual fruit was a hit. Great work.

my husband and I recently visited the Mixon Fruit Farm. It used to be a thriving orange grove but is now a shadow of its former self. The staff were very friendly, had a nice lunch in the cafe... Did some souvenir shopping... They do have really good juices, wines and cheeses. We took a tour of the grove with... More

If you are in the Sarasota, Fl area, do yourself a favor and stop by Mixon's for the freshest, sweetest grapefruit and oranges available anywhere. Fresh, FREE samples are available daily that will convince you that you are getting the highest quality of fruit that there is to offer.

We actually ate lunch here and it was good! We had pizza and I had a Greek salad. I would order both again. The real reason to come is for the orange ice cream in the back of the store. My silly kids didn't even get orange. They got chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. There is a huge store with all... More

On our vacations to the area, one of our first stops is at Mixon's to pick up fresh oranges and grapefruit. They also offer free samples of their fresh squeezed juices. They sell many varieties of candies made on site, and their fudge and caramel is wonderful. They also have a gift shop. It's a place that you can go... More

After reading good reviews of Mixon's here, we were able to catch the last Orange Blossom Tram Tour of the day at 3:00 p.m. (others at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm) after having spent the earlier part of the day in Sarasota. Located a short 5 - 7 minute drive outside Bradenton, the grove tour was very enjoyable especially on... More
