For 72 years Mixon Fruit Farms has been growing some of the best citrus in the State of Florida. In 2006, Janet and Dean Mixon took the farm in another direction. “We still have a tremendous emphasis on fruit,” says Dean Mixon, but we knew that we had to diversify. Part of the changes meant getting more involved in the community. “We are an orange grove and a business, almost in the middle of town,” says Janet Mixon. We wanted to offer things here that could help other businesses and provide a wonderful atmosphere for families.
