We are open for U-Pick oranges in December (sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later.)
Five generations of Grahams have worked in the orange groves on our family farm over the past 100 years. After serving in the US Navy both of our boys will be returning to the farm. Our oldest son, Zak, who has served for 12 years, has decided it is time to come home and raise his family on the farm! Cooper left for the Navy in Dec 2019. He too has decided to come back home, at this point he is planning a pretty cool career change….watch for more to come.
Strolling through the orange grove is like taking a step back in time, when life was simple. Bring the kids and escape the hustle n bustle of our busy world. It brings our heart joy to hear you and your kids having fun and making memories in the grove. Follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information, or you can call/text 352-636-3821.
We grow Honey Bells, Red Navels and Sugar Bells.
Peaches are ripe on the farm in April and May
What began as a family farm growing Florida Citrus has grown into a popular Central Florida Destination. We planted Planted our first block of UFOne peaches in 2014, in 2016 we opened our orchard up as a U-Pick. The UFOne is ripe the first 2 weeks in May. The UFOne is a large firm peach with fabulous flavor.
In 2019 we began picking the UFBest, it is ripe in April. The UFBest is beautiful red peach that is best picked when still a bit firm.
We are working with the University of Florida with some new varieties that will be coming to the farm soon!
We have had pickers visiting our farm from far and wide including: Miami, Naples, Tampa, Orlando, Georgia, New York, California and even Germany just to name a few.
Folks always ask if our peaches are cling stone or free stone. Well, Florida peaches are classified differntly then their norther cousins. Florida peaches are either melters or non-melters. Our current varieties are non-melters. Which means a great shelf life. In an attempt to compare peaches to peaches, they would be consider a semi-cling. The come off the pit real easy, they have consistent flavor all the way to the pit, but do not get the gritty center like a free stone.
Our favorite part of the farm is meeting you!
