Mixon Fruit Farms
Dean and Janet Mixon are happy to share a portion of their citrus grove with Wildlife Inc. for a Florida Wildlife Care & Education Center.
We provide much needed land and shelter for orphaned and injured Birds, Animals and Reptiles. Our mission is to rehabilitate Florida wildlife for release back into the wild, and to promote education, appreciation, and respect for wildlife. For more information, visit www.wildlifeinc.org, or visit them on Facebook!
Cages are built in the grove next to orange trees as our family-owned and operated business embraces the Florida Wildlife Preserve. We invite all to come and visit, meet the animals up close and let us share our love of wildlife with you. You will surely go away inspired by the beauty of these creatures. Our animals and birds come and go as they are treated and rehabilitated. Some are released back into the wild and some must find a permanent rescue home. We are proud to share these photographs and hope you enjoy them.

| Comments from Satisfied Customers:|
|My Dad, who lives in River Isles, Bradenton, had the best grapefruits in the world growing in his backyard along the Braden River. Alas, that tree has stopped bearing. What a disappointment to us all.|
Lo and behold, just before Christmas, we found on our porch in Trumbull, Connecticutt a Mixon's fruit box which to our delight contained beautiful pink grapefruits. Surprisingly they compete with Dad's grapefruits for deliciousness, juiciness, and delight. Thanks to generous Dad and thanks to Mixons.
Our family has visited Mixon's store, orchard, and nature tour frequently. We enjoy the juice, the oranges, orange ice cream cones, and friendly people. Last year we brought Dad's one-year old great granddaughter with us on the tram tour. She liked the ice-cream, too.
