This is a great place to get lunch, bring the kids, and get fresh produce. Fresh homemade soups are my favorite! I usually take mine to go, but many friends I know love to eat outside.

Sign up for on-line coupons and special discounts at this wonderful local establishment. They have tours of the fruit processing, certain times of the year and it's worth it for both adults and children. Games for children, restaurant for lunch, plenty of parking. We enjoy frequenting local small businesses, who really did "build that!" We live in Fort Pierce, and we often drive a few miles to purchase things regularly, like home made fudge, a variety of ices, and naturally a wide diversity of oranges, grapefruit and other gift items. We always ship fruit to friends and family up north, each year, using only Al's Family Farms!

I had the opportunity to visit Al's Family Farms on a school field trip. The tour completely exceeded my expectations. The tour guides were great in giving us a mix of history and intriguing facts about the FL citrus industry. The tour included historic photos, antique citrus artifacts, and best of all juice & fruit samples!
I highly recommend the tour for all ages and don't leave without trying their orange swirl ice cream treat!
