Mixon Fruit Farms

If you part the branches of Mixon Fruit Farms’ citrus trees, you might spy an unusual sight: Burmese pythons, an alligator, a crocodile, and African land tortoises basking in the sunlight, surrounded by cages of roosting falcons.

The farm that began in 1939 as a 20-acre roadside fruit stand has stayed true to citrus farmer Willy Mixon’s vision of showcasing the region’s natural splendor. But in addition to an extra 50 acres of fruit trees, the farm has expanded its focus to include a wildlife refuge, where rescue volunteers nurse injured animals back to health and educate visitors on native and exotic species. The farm also hosts an on-site tropical garden along with dazzling koi ponds, and has a magical maze open to kids of all ages.

Along with daily tours of the grove and sanctuary, Mixon Fruit Farms also spotlights Florida’s bounty with citrus-infused ice cream and salads at Groveside Café. Homemade fudge and orange juice also populate the 14,000-square-foot gift shop

Customer Reviews

The place isn't huge, but it was fun for our family of 4 with 4 and 6 year old boys. We really liked the animal rescue part of the tram tour.

Have been to Mixon Fruit Farms but this is the first time on the Tram Tour and it was a delight. The tram narrator was extremely knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. It was also fun browsing through the many items for sale and sampling the juices and wines. The woman that helped us with our purchases was a gem. My friend and I had a great time.

What a lovely surprise. Hidden off the beaten path, the Groupon was a great excuse to finally find and visit this place. Loved the tour and the hands-on intro to their support of Wildlife Rescue. I'll be back and this will be a staple stop for my out-of-town guests - a enjoyable look at the real Florida.
