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:|
|Thank you for the wonderful tour and lunch. You might enjoy seeing what we put in our newsletter - page 6.|
At Mixon, we started with a wonderful lunch in their Honeybell Hall. While we ate, we had a very interesting slide presentation telling us about the Mixon Family and their dedication to the Fruit Farm.
The tour on the Orange Blossom Express Tram took us thru a variety of citrus trees. We passed by a rock waterfall, a Koi Pond (largest in Florida), a Butterfly Garden and Wetlands. In addition to all that, we made a stop at the Florida Wildlife Preserve. They dedicate their time to rescuing injured and orphaned animals, birds, and reptiles.
We had a great day.
