As Mixon Fruit Farms begins their 84th season of making Mixon memories, Janet and Dean Mixon are having to consider changes for the business. We get several offers every year from people that would like to buy the property and we never really gave it a second thought, says Janet Mixon. We have delt with so much says Dean Mixon, from NAFTA bringing in all the deceases that has killed our citrus trees, Covid closing us down, staffing issues, the hurricane knocking off half the fruit, just to name a few. Because of all the issues we are having to take a serious look at offers. We don’t have a signed contract, at this time, however we are in the process of seeing what can be done on our land, says Dean Mixon.
Nothing will change at Mixon’s until possibly 2024. We love Mixon Fruit Farms and the memories that we have been a part of for Brides, Birthday parties, and our regular customers. We are getting ready for the Taste of Mixons on November 5th with Southeast High Schools culinary arts student and their Chili Cook off. November 11th we are celebrating our Veterans and First Responders , with $10 toward lunch and a free ice cream. November 12th we will be having our Harvest Festival with over 50 crafters and entertainment, plus Jack Hartmans concert in the pavilion for children. December 10th is our Christmas Craft Fair with a visit with Santa. Dean and I want to continue making Mixon memories as long as possible so we hope everyone comes out for a fun time, says Janet.
