Marketing

Being located off interstate 75 our orange trees naturally draw a lot of attention to themselves and draw our costumers in when they see the fruits in their preferred stage, our billboards across many of the local roads and in local malls and businesses also attract a lot of customers for our farm. People enjoy coming to hand pick their fruit and seeing the exact branch it grew off of and interacting with our staff and watching the more commercial side of the harvesting and packaging. We are very family friendly and your kids are sure to enjoy a nice half hour- hour picking fresh bright oranges in the Florida sun. Most people leave with a smile and satisfied that the fruit they just picked was cheaper, more fun to do, and possibly exactly what they would've picked up at there local food store.
