As you drive on I-75 on the West Coast of Florida, you will see billboards tempting you make a slight detour on your trip to stop and taste the amazing oranges of Florida. The Hancock Orange Groves are in a perfect location for those traveling on I-75. For our visit in 2008 you can’t pick your own oranges, but there is a nice little shop with FRESH oranges, and orange related merchandise such as magnets and t-shirts.
Date of last visit: 2010
The Hancock Orange Groves may allow you to pick your own oranges. It is recommended you call ahead to find out if the You Pick oranges is open – phone and address are below.
The owner is very Florida Friendly, and will let you sample the oranges!

We stopped in on 12/30/09 and bought a bag of some of the most delicious oranges we have ever had! Great fruit and good prices. They also carry orange blossom honey from a near by farm, which is also excellent. We’re keeping Hancock Groves on our list of places to stop next time we’re down there.

We stop at Hancock Grove – Exit 293 – every spring on our way to AND from Spring Break in St. Pete. We’ve been stopping for at least 10 years. The fruit is always great. We feel like we are finally on Spring Break when we reach the orange grove. On the way home – we feel like we are taking some Florida sunshine with us when we buy oranges and grapefruit.
Highly recommend taking the time to stop.
I want to say that this orchard has the most wonderful fruit EVER!! We stopped there to get a bag of oranges. Well, we ended up with three bags of oranges, some grapefruit and some Tangelos. The oranges are the most juicy and sweet that I have EVER had. I love this place. The prices are fair and the fruit can’t get any fresher.
If you get a chance to stop in, you absolutely must. To miss this place will be a huge mistake. Go ahead and pull off the road and taste the fruit. You too will agree that this place has the best ever.
I wish I could get them to ship me some oranges. I am already out of fruit.
