1) Al's is a 46 year, 3rd generation, American family owned business. We strive to grow, harvest, pack and ship the highest quality, local, Florida fruit. Al's proudly features more local citrus varieties than anyone in the Indian River growing region.
2) It all starts in the field with meticulous grove
care. My youngest son Matt, shares my passion for growing
healthy trees. My friend Mark rounds out my grove team having
3 generations of local citrus grower experience.
Gentle, careful harvesting by Fernando is essential in the field. Next it's up to our experienced packinghouse team to make absolutely sure your fruit is carefully inspected! Each Navel, Honeybell and Ruby Red is checked a minimum of 8 times prior to packing.
My wife Sharon even takes the extra time to help make gift basket bows by hand and makes every batch of fudge herself!
Note- Matt graduated in 2019 from FL Southern College with
his Citrus degree and now works fulltime at Al's Family Farms.
As for me- I'm responsible for supervising crop selection, growing, harvesting, washing, waxing & grading of virtually every piece of fruit we pick.
Why do we control everything? It's simple. Less mistakes. That's why we're able to back every shipment with our 100% No Nonsense guarantee. Grandpa Al wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
P.S.- Low Shipping on all of our packages this year makes it more affordable; especially when one delicious gift box of fruit satisfies the entire family!
