Oranges are EXCELLENT!! Staff was very nice and friendly! We went on the tour and saw a few alligators. The orange slushy was very good also.

“Awesome Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

What an off the beat and path of theme parks opportunity. Price is reasonable for a nice ride in a monster safari truck thru the wildness of a citrus farm. As a controller of a citrus packing house in my younger days, you would think I would find it a simple la de da experience but something about riding on wheels that tower over ones head made it fun, new and interesting.. As silly as it might seem, I'm going to ride the eco-tour AGAIN, this time with my mom. Save money and skip the worn path of days in theme parks, day in and out and go there. Schedule an appointment though to make sure everyone is on the same page. :) If I was a kid, I would love it as a kind of fun break from the zillion tourists of the theme parks. Take pictures and tip your driver.

A taste of what florida is. Great place for scenic pictures. Loved Jaws and fake aligators. Didn't expect such an interesting place when I made the stop. Great place to stop..........................................................

“Grab your own oranges!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

A side trip for something different enroute to Disney. We went specifically for the u-pick portion. We were outfitted with basket-catchers on poles to pick our oranges, and were brought buy a small bus to the trees that had fruit to pick. Who knew picking citrus was an art form? Had a great time but got tired after picking two bags. An experience to appreciate where food comes from.

I would call ahead if you are going during peak season to make sure there is fresh citrus available if you are interested in the u-pick. Adorable farmstand and you can see gators in their pond! Next time we will try their eco-tour.
