Al's Family Farms
(Fort Pierce,FL)Al's Family Farms is located in the historic, Big Red Barn on Kings Highway in Fort Pierce, Florida. (Take Interstate 95 to exit 131B and proceed north one mile on Kings Highway, also called State Road 713). A visit to Al's Family Farms today is a blast from the past, the way old Florida used to be. Back in the day, Kings Highway was wall to wall orange groves and citrus stands. Winter residents and tourists loaded their trunks with big bags of incredibly sweet, Indian River Fruit. Today nearly all of the fruit stands and packinghouses have disappeared, but not Al's! Clinging to old school values, we still do things the old fashioned way. Al's hand picks and gift packs the freshest fruit from local groves. Citrus, gift fruit and fresh squeezed juice is our specialty, but Jeff's wife, Sharon also makes incredible, homemade fudge. Al's Red Barn Grill features Angus cheeseburgers and authentic Mexican food too. Come take a guided tour of Al's Family Farms Historic Red Barn Packinghouse!
