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:|
|We took the tram tour first and were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour today! We liked hearing the history of the family and farm. One highlight was definitely the wildlife preserve with Damon. He had so much knowledge and stories to tell. We were able to feed a wild pig, pat a skunk, hold a gator and a python!! After the tram tour we visited the butterfly garden and maze, had a look at the children's playground (great little area if you have children with you), and fed some very hungry fish in the big pond!|
Once back at the shop we tried the juice and it was so refreshing!! They had orange, lemon and grapefruit juice to try as well as popcorn and jams! But what we had been waiting to try was the ice cream! The orange and vanilla ice cream combined was great!
A shoutout to Mr W, great tour guide and very friendly and welcoming! Actually all the staff were attentive and friendly. We had a great few hours here, definitely worth a visit, if you are in Bradenton!
