Thanks for your comment, Mary. When we travel we try to stop at as many U-Picks and roadside farm stands as we can. Always a new experience.

Thanks, Michelle. Nothing like being in a citrus grove while the blooms are on the trees. Good timing for you!

Hi Mindy - Thanks for the nice comments. We strive to do things a bit different than other U-Picks with the tasting tables and maps. How else can you get an idea of what you like best?

We love coming here! We pick whatever appeals to us and throw it in the giant bag provided. There are so many varieties of citrus that we find ourselves spending hours wandering around. Definitely a must do for valley residents and tourists alike.

Thank you, Kathy, for the nice comments. Glad to hear you enjoy your visits to our farm. You should smell how great it is there now with most all the varieties in full bloom. Best time in the year to be around a citrus grove!!

Had a fun-filled weekend afternoon picking citrus. There were a variety of citrus fruits and we just kept on filling bags after bags, tempted by the freshness and quality. We also got a lot of information on the citrus fruits.
