Large selection of fruit. Spectacular gift shop. Wine tasting and samples throughout the store. Tomato bisque at the restaurant was really good. Tour of the animals was fun.

Thank you so much for stopping in and the 5 bubble review. You must have been here during our awesome 2015 -16 season when we had fruit in the store. Or you have been here a few times and combine your visits into one review. :) The fruit is here from Nov - May. Hope you can return soon! Thanks... More

Very touristy. It is a large gift shop with a cafe and you can walk through the production line if anything is going on. I have never found anything going on. They have an orange soft serve and a mixed fruit shake. Both are great. Have never taken the tram tour but I hear it is fun. They sell fruit... More

This wasn't what I expected, and the trolley ride was almost torturous because it was slower than I could've walked the tour- with that being said, the tour of the wildlife rescue was the best part in my opinion, and the gentleman was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The people inside the gift shop at the cafe weren't the friendliest (the... More

We have gone to Mixon's Fruit Farm over the years we lived in Bradenton. The fruits and other goodies are of good quality, however the price is very high for their items. Rather than ship fruit to Northern Ontario from Mixon's, which we have done in the past, one can buy the fruit at Costco, Walmart, etc. a lot cheaper... More

Thanks for stopping in and posting your review of Mixon's. We're glad you compared the fruit to Costco and Walmart. You are right you can buy citrus cheaper there. That is because of NAFTA, the fruit is shipped from South America. Fruit from there has ruined a lot of the fruit industry here. U.S. fruit is subject to inspections and... More

Nice out of the way fruit farm with store. Orange and grapefruit juices and lemonade are outstanding. Worth the extra money for fresh squeezed straight from the harvest juices. This was our second visit, and we plan to come anytime we are in the area. Can't get this quality in Pittsburgh!

This is worth a visit just to say you went. Chock full of souvenirs, knick-knacks, odd foods. Depending on the day, can be overwhelmingly jammed with kids. If you value your taste buds, avoid the "wines". These are novelty drinks - absolutely awful - made from stuff not normally expected to be in wine and revoltingly sweet. You can do... More
