They have the best Ice Cream hands down. I prefer the coconut, but the Superman and orange soft serve are really good too. All of their jellies are yummy. They have organic eggs, meat, produce and fruit, besides just the normal tourist stuff.

Hello! I will be visiting next week (Jan 28 or 29 or 30) and have an 8 year old that would love to pick oranges. Are they ready to be picked at this time of year? What about peaches?

We have Oranges that are ready to be picked, but Peaches will not be available until May. We also have Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice that's delicious. You can also tour the packing house and see how we wash and pack fruit.
