I originally went to the beach location and enjoyed the ice cream so wanted to check out the farm thinking there would more to see. It's a pretty small store; fruits and vegetables are limited and not very good prices.. Road leading to it is...unpaved and very rocky. We were the only people in the store and trying to check out while ice cream was melting and they took a while to even notice. May go back to the beach which is in a better location. Not worth going to the middle of nowhere for just some ice cream.More

Hi Jessica...thanks for checking out our farm store. While we are open there during the off season, we really gear up in the fall and winter with more to offer and also Saturday activities for the family. We kick that off on October 17th. Citrus...More

Went out to dinner at Waldo's and decided to try here for dessert afterwards. Glad we did they have a real nice orange custard. Great location enabling you to enjoy a tasty dessert and stroll down Ocean Drive to walk it off.

If you want TRUE Indian River Citrus, this is the place! On Ocean Drive right next to Costa D’Este Resort.

Stopped in on a sultry hot day and didn’t know what to expect. Orange ice cream saved the day. Absolutely yummy!

Every visit I make to Vero Beach, Countryside Citrus is one of my first stops for their creamy orange soft serve. This year my visit will be delayed because I was just diagnosed with stage IV cancer, and I can’t travel until after I know...how Chemo will effect me. One thing I can anticipate with my chemo, is a side effect that will make it extremely painful to eat anything cold. My sweet Dad called down to the store to see if they ship their delicious soft serve, in an effort to cheer me up before the side effect of my chemo set in. Normally they don’t ship but after sharing my story, Leslie said she needed to check on a few things and would call my Dad back. Not only did she figure out a way to get the soft serve up to Wisconsin completely frozen, she wouldn’t accept any payment from my Dad. Just when you think all kindness and humanity are lost, someone completely surprises you. I can’t tell you how much this kind gesture from a complete stranger meant to me, if possible it made the ice cream taste even better! Thank you Leslie and Countryside Citrus!More

Visiting Vero looking for real estate to buy, staying next door at Costa d’ Esta Resort. Went for Lunch and it was so good I went back for dinner! Best fish Tacos! Fresh, Fresh, Fresh! The guacamole and chips were best I have EVER had!...The soft serve ice cream with the fresh coffee slushy was different but AMAZING!More

Wonderful experience stop by for peach ice cream. Out of stock had the orange and it was surely not a disappointment in a sugar cone. Owner was so kind and outgoing gave me fresh Georgia peaches and a slice of Keylime pie. Customer service was...excellent. I’ll walk Oceanside with my cone completed a wonderful sunsetMore

This place used to be great. They had awesome tasty citrus, low prices, many extras - jams, ice cream, etc. it has a lot of history which you can learn right there at their lake. There’s also a small but very nice trail. Now it...is a just a good place. The prices increased twice over the last five years, for some fruit even more. And the quality of the citrus has gone down, unfortunately. This year we were really disappointed having to pay twice as much for not so great-tasting oranges and grapefruit. I understand that the price increase is a general trend. But that doesn’t take away from our disappointment, especially, since the fruit do not explode in your mouth anymore but rather taste like average citrus from a supermarket that were kept in a fridge. While I have no illusions that the prices will go down, I hope it’s just this season that the fruit were tasteless and that the fruit quality will return to its former super tasty! It would be awesome to have a once outstanding store back!More
