The Orange Shop's Reality Show!
The Orange Shop has been in business for 80 years, and since citrus trees don't live that long, we must constantly replace trees to maintain production. Our "planning horizon" spans decades, and generations.
In 2016, we began a project to rejuvenate one of our groves in Ft. Pierce, Florida -- which is in the Heart of the Indian River growing area. Below you can watch the little videos we're making as we go through the process. Follow our progress as we create a brand new citrus grove!
