The Showcase of Citrus is a family-owned orange grove and cattle ranch and is home to the world’s largest 4×4 Monster Truck Safari. The safari treks across the 2,500-acre estate through citrus groves, forests, cattle pastures, wooded swamps, and other natural Florida habitats. The safari also features a few exotic animals including a zebra named Barcode, watusi, Asian water buffalo, and American longhorn cattle. The farm is a busy place especially on the weekends from November to May. Reservations for the Safari are highly recommended and tickets can be purchased at the store. Admission to the grove is free, and visitors are welcome to explore, picnic, play on the playground, and visit or feed the farm animals. They also have a gem mine where you can buy bags of ore that contain a variety of gems, fossils, shark’s teeth, shells and arrowheads. Sift through them the in the sluice boxes and take home what you find. For guests who want the freshest fruit available, U-Pick Citrus is open from May to November. They have over 50 varieties of citrus to choose from. The Old Tyme Country Store sells specialty orange drinks and treats, local produce and honey, gator meat by the pound, and souvenirs.
