Reviewed December 9, 2012

The movie was very informative and educational. It encourages support of the Local citrus industry.
A must see when visiting Lake Wales.

“Free juice”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Not much here except free juice a a short movie about how juice is processed. Used to give tours of factory but that ended after someone sued them ( or that's the story)for something. Staff there are very nice.

“Free juice”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The visitor center is quite small. There are a lot of boards and some videos providing information about the orange groves and how the OJ is made. There's a range of products in the shop and you get to try the juice mixes for free - a visit in the factory would be better though.

“opportunity to sample their products”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

There is a short movie explaining the processes involved in making their juices, which was interesting. There was an expensive gift shop with anything "orange" you wanted to buy. We did enjoy trying some of the different juices they produce.
I would not recommend a long trip to get here as there is not much to do, but we stopped on our way back from Kissimmee Lake State Park and it was worth the stop. You don't need more than 15-20 minutes time.
