The grove tour is led by a very enthusiastic tour guide but there's only so much to see. There are rescue animals that are fun to see and again a very devoted guide. Huge gift shop and ice cream and deli. When we were there no one was in the processing facility which would have been interesting to see.

Decided to stop here after seeing an ad for it. People there were extremely friendly. Food is pretty good and decent priced. We will go back again. Nice to know there's a place like this close

I've been here a few times. The food here is OK, but there are quite a few souvenirs and tasty sweet treats to try here. I highly recommend the orange ice cream, made with real oranges! Depending on the time of year, there may be a few different tourist-style things to do here - they do weddings, as well as... More

Mixon is great at advertising and promotion. Unfortunately, it falls short of what it builds itself up to. Went once and that was enough.

A lot of Florida "knick-nacks" and souveniers. Since Mixon's have been growing and selling citrus for generations, they've got it down pat. You can pick out oranges, grapefruits, etc. to be shipped to your friends up north (not cheap, but convenient). They also have a "short-order" restaurant on the premises that serves decent food. But the orange soft-serve (and especially... More

This was an interesting tour of the property, with emphasis on the wild animal rescue center which was very enlightening. Would advise that visitors call first to find out the times of the tours as the actual retail facility can be covered in an hour and you could end up with a long wait.

This is not a day long destination but definitely a must do every winter visit. In the winter months the fruit is being picked and they have a little inside tour so you can see what happens to the fruit when it comes in. Very interesting for anyone of any age. They have a tour through the groves, there is... More
