Mixon Fruit Farms

Wildlife Refuge

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.

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 husband & I visited Mixon Fruit Farms yesterday with a group from our church in St. Petersburg.

My first compliment goes to the tram driver (I believe his name is John). Not only did he do a terrific job with the tour, but he also showed great kindness to my husband who has difficulty with mobility & needed to stay on the tram during the wildlife show. John brought the alligator over to my husband so that he could experience the animal. Then he moved the tram forward so that my husband would be able to see the second half of the show. His compassion & thoughtfulness are a testimonial to the mission of your organization.

My second compliment goes to the gentleman who gave us the wildlife show. He was articulate, patient, pleasant, and interesting. He is obviously crazy about the animals in his care--and he made us feel that way too!

My third compliment goes to the lovely lady who served our luncheon. She made sure all of us had enough to eat and drink. Someone asked the type of orange being served and she immediately found out for us. She was quick to bring around refills for drinks.

If these three people are representative of your entire staff, you are lucky indeed! Thank you for a lively tour and thank you for all you do!
