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

Nixon fruit farms is a great place to take friends, relatives and family. They serve great food. And the gift shop is awesome. They have a great variety of fruit to buy for personal enjoyement or to ship to friends and family.

This place was awesome! Like stepping back in time. Truly a gem of a place. The fruit farm is in excellent shape, the tram tour was a ton of fun, and the restaurant and gift shop was the topping on the cake. The facility, while retaining the look and feel of the past was clean and well kept up. We... More

I used to go to Mixon's frequently, but then the death of my late husband and business obligations crowded it from my mind. Since we were on vacation this week, my new husband (of 6 plus years) and I decided to check it out. He had never been to Mixon's before. What a surprise, to see the changes! It was... More

This place was listed as one of the top 10 attractions to visit in the area. While I enjoyed it, I'm not sure I'd go that far unless there isn't much else as far as attractions. It was a bit of a drive from Sarasota. We arrived and bought tickets for the tour. We browsed the shop while we waited... More
