About Us

Here is a little history about our family and our business...

Our family has been involved in citrus for many decades. In fact, Nick Faryna was a third generation citrus grower, with 45 years of citrus growing experience himself. It all started with our grove care company, which Nick and his wife, Sharon, started in high school together. Nick and Sharon's company did grove caretaking and harvesting for many groves located in northern central Florida.

Over the years, a long time dream of Nick's was to offer a fresh fruit packing house with the purpose of providing the best quality of citrus available. That dream came true with the opening of Sunsational Citrus in 2001; making it only one of the few packing houses left operating in Lake County, Florida.

Their goal was to offer more than just a box of fruit to our customers. That's why they, along with their children, formed a retail store that is warm, inviting, and decorated with citrus memorabilia that has been acquired over the years. During the season fresh fruit is available by the piece, bag, or shipped as gifts. Also available in the country store is local honey, jelly, candies, and novelty Florida-themed items.

In addition, during the harvesting season, our store offers, on a daily basis, fresh squeezed juice with free samples always on hand.

Sunsational Citrus has a large commercial business selling to customers nationwide. What makes this packing house unique is the fact that we actually are still the caretakers for the majority of the groves the fruit comes from. To keep it the freshest available, fruit is only harvested after an order has been generated.

Our family has been in the citrus business for many years, and we hope for many more yet to come. Come visit us at 700 N central Ave Umatilla FL 32784, or call 352.771.2013 or toll free 866.354.7696 (866-FLGROWN).
