Interesting tram ride around the orchards with an excellent tour guide. Great animal sanctuary that rescues an assortment of animals. Got to hold an alligator and pet a huge snake. Lots of fun for young and old alike.

I go to Mixon's weekly for OJ and lemonade available all year; fresh citrus is seasonal--October to May or so.. I think it all is the best I've had. I especially like the OJ flavor changes as the citrus season progresses--the juice changes as different varieties oranges come ripe. Lemonade and grapefruit juice are top notch too. A high point...

We have visited Mixon Farm every year for the last 10 years and watched our daughter grow with photos by the koi pond. No other orange juice compares to Mixon we just wish we could buy it in the UK. The tour is a must as well Damien and his volunteers do a wonderful job

Great visit to Mixon orchard tour is a must if you have children. It's very educational but the way it's taught the kids only see fun and will relay what they've learned later on the ride home.

To be fair, we were there in the off season, so no fresh citrus fruit was available to be sold. I was expecting more candies and assorted treats though. My kids each got the orange swirl ice cream cones and they loved them. The store in the off season is basically just a gift shop though.

We took the tour at Mixon's and really enjoyed it. It was well run and very interesting. The store has many samples including their wines and lunch was very good and reasonable. A fun afternoon.

I would have never heard of Mixon Fruit Farms if it wasn't for Groupon, but I'm glad I found out about it. We had a fun visit with a tram tour of the grounds which discuss the history of citrus growing in the area. Wildlife, Inc. also houses many rescued animals on the grounds so you get to see them...

We really enjoyed our tour of the farm and the animal rescue was very interesting and informative. got a picture holding an alligator and with a red-winged hawk. Great family outing. We did not have kids with us, but enjoyed it just the same. The employees are friendly and helpful. Mixon makes their own wine which makes a great gift!... More
