Mixon fruit farms is much larger than most of the other citrus groves you might visit, with a lot more to offer. They have a good size bakery, plenty of citrus and Floridian souvenirs and gifts and their standout ice cream stand in the back. Make no mistake, the ONLY reason I come here, like all the other citrus groves... More

This is a place that is off the beaten path, away from the beach, a good rainy day trip. They are closed on Sundays. But if you've had too much sun, and you'd like to see more of Florida off the beaten path. This is a nice little side trip. They offer lunch, wine tasting, many souvenirs, Orange ice cream,... More

I have been here quite a few times over the years and was really disappointed with the last stop at the store. It gives the impression of being very unfriendly with signs all over saying don't do this, don't do that, not very welcoming at all. You can't even pick out individual fruit by yourself, everything is bagged. There are... More

Mixon's Fruit Market is not only the best place to get your fresh orange juice in the Bradenton area it is an destination/attraction with a whole lot more. Their orange juice is made on site. You can go into the back and watch them make it. There is nothing but the juice from the oranges, nothing at all added. They... More

Mixon F, Owner at Mixon Fruit Farms, responded to this review

We guarantee all of our fruit and if you will mention it on your next visit, we will gladly replace. This is late in the season and the fruit is at its peak of ripeness. That combined with the warm, humid weather, an undetectable bruise can turn to decay overnight. We advise everyone to get the fruit to a cool... More

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
