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

We decided to take a brake from the beach today and we found this attraction online. So glad we went. We had an awesome time. John, the tram tour guide, did an outstanding job. We decided to have lunch there too and the food was very good and reasonably priced. What I liked most was the service we received there.... More

Well done many selections of fruit to choose. Locally grown and excellent. Much more to see than you expect. Good experience to enjoy Florida and buy some goodies.

I did not hold out much hope for this experience, especially when I learned it was $10, but for the experience of holding an alligator all the knowledge I gained about the citrus plants, and supporting the good rescue work these people do it was a bargain!!!

From the moment we got there, it was a very nice experience. We went there because a friend who lives there took us to get some of their delicious orange soft-serve ice cream! Beware, they hook you with samples everywhere in the store, that's how from only ice cream, I ended up buying their awesome fruit wines, fresh lemonade and... More

We have been going to Mixon fruit farm for 21 years it is always on our list of things to do when we come to Bradenton to see my dad. I always stock up on their fresh squeezed orange juice and grapefruit juice and the Key lime jelly. We love Mixons.

Love it! My visit to Mixon Fruit Farms will be often!! I enjoy the fruit, gift store, and the warm friendly atmosphere. I love the butterfly garden and was thankful I brought along my camera. Haven't seen the animals yet so will save that for the next visit. Maybe some icecream too?? Great place.. (:
