Tour an Orange Grove on Wheels

Nice store onsite, with a lot of knickknacks and tourist stuff. Orange soft serve ice cream and vanilla also twist. They have a cafe. There is homemade fudge and chocolate candies for those so inclined. They also have locally-made wines to buy and taste. Something for the whole family. No trolley on Monday.
