About Us

Over the past 84 years Maxwell Groves has evolved from a small open-air fruit stand into a packinghouse with a country store that offers a sprawling front porch with orange rockers where customers relax, enjoy homemade orange ice cream and on some days, a cool breeze. 

We carry all varieties of fruit along with fresh-squeezed OJ, Florida wines, local honey, our famous dairy-free soft serve ice cream, gifts, jams & jellies. From the fresh juice made daily to the orange ice cream made with that same fresh juice, customers are welcome to browse our country store and ship fruit to loved ones in our authentic Old Florida setting.

Need some Vitamin C?

Come try our FREE complimentary sample of Freshly-Squeezed Florida Orange Juice!

We squeeze and package our orange juice IN-HOUSE! We promise you won't get anything more fresh than this!

How so? We receive citrus from LOCAL growers into our Packing-House! The fruit is then washed and brought into the store via the conveyor! Our employees then hand-pick the best quality fruit and take them upstairs to be juiced into our containers, and hand-placed labels are then applied! How cool is that?



A glass of citrus wine of your choice for $5.00.
