A little country store with all the local fixins from fresh squeezed orange juice, local honey, gifts, and fresh orange ice cream. Come out and sit on one of the orange rocking chairs and relax a bit on our front porch.

The orange ice cream is great. This is a very quaint country store operated by several generations. There are numerous items that can seldom be found any place else. Relax on the front porch and take in a bit of old time Florida.
