Thank-you for your great review! The Citrus Milkshake that is to die for is called our Sunshine Shake and is made with hand dipped ice cream and our own fresh squeezed orange juice! We are glad you enjoyed your visit.

Great experience, gracious and informative staff. Fun picnic/outside eating area. Easy access. A worthwhile group activity, or just a stop along the way.

A group of 40 of us had lunch at Al's and then had a tour of the operation. Since it was a group tour we selected from: chicken burrito, chef salad or cheese burger.

The tour of the grading and packing operation is a must see for anyone in the Fort Pierce area. Very informative and fun too, even a free sample. Food on site includes orange products from the orchards such as juice and ice cream.
