Caretaking Operations

The journey of an orange to the grocery store always begins with a single tree. Much care goes into producing a single piece of fruit and Peace River Packing is there at every step. It begins with years of nurturing a tree to fruit bearing age, then selecting just the right moment to harvest when the fruit has the perfect combination of sweetness and flavor, and finally ending when we carefully harvest, clean, and protect the citrus fruit before it makes its way to our customers.


Quality fruit comes from careful planning, persistence, experience, and plenty of patience. We believe that a dedicated and professional approach to agriculture is why Peace River has prospered throughout our 80-year history.

Peace River provides professional caretaking services for co-op members and other growers in the Central Florida area. The services we provide are grove development, pesticide and fertilizer application, irrigation management, and general grove maintenance.

Our pest/weed management activities include planning, consulting, monitoring, mixing and application, and record keeping. We work closely with University of Florida IFAS to ensure that our methods of pest/week control are consistent with scientific research, sustainable, and adhere to best practices for our industry.
