The Raisin' Cane tour provides a behind-the-scenes view of how sugar and oranges are grown, harvested, processed and sent to your local grocery store. Participants learn about the history and development of the area and U.S. Sugar, tour U.S. Sugar’s facilities, and get a sample of our sweetest crop.

During the tours, participants also visit Southern Gardens Citrus, a subsidiary of U.S. Sugar, and sample its 100 percent, pure Florida orange juice. They learn about other crops grown on the farms, such as corn, green beans and other vegetables, and see Lake Okeechobee, which is world famous for its bass fishing. The day culminates with a free, home-cooked, southern-style lunch.
