"Dear Janet (Hagerty), Words will never express clearly enough my appreciation of what you did for me today. I knew what I wanted, but clearly had no idea how to go about it. You came to my rescue and came up with a super idea. I walked out of Mixon's today with five adorable packages for my breakfast club. Never will I ever forget you or your girls or your creative talents. What a super person you are. THANKS AGAIN. I am sending a copy of this to Janet and Dean Mixon, although I am sure they are aware of your talents. Also, every one of the staff we spoke with was so nice.
You’ll find Gifts for every occasion...Jewelry, colorful Ceramic Home Décor, Cards, Children's Books & Games, intriguing Pictures and more. Don’t miss the Wine Sampling Counter for a wonderful selection of award-winning Florida Wines. Some are made with Florida-grown Muscadine Grapes and Mixon Oranges. Stay for lunch...Choose from an array of delicious Sandwiches, Soups, and Salads in our Groveside Café. We now offer Javarama Coffees. How about a Cappuccino, Cafe Mocha or Latte?
We’ve got lots to see and do all year round. May through October, our delicious citrus is growing and preparing for another great season. November through early May, we’re IN SEASON! You can sample the many varieties of seasonal Citrus as you begin your visit.
