What a nostalgic place to visit. Some visitors may not like the fact that this is a very old attraction. But that is it's charm. Sure the animals are in old confinements but it is very clean and the animals are well taken care of. This is a has been place but it would be sad if it ever closed

This attraction has much more than you see outside. Apparently, it started as a citrus grove. The gift shop is overwhelming! After that, there is a dinosaur exhibit, followed by an extensive private zoo. How the owners maintain and improve this family business is astounding! There is something there for almost everyone.

We started taking our kids here when they were tiny, because they love the animals - They call it the Zedonk Zoo. But be prepared to step into a different world! Boyett's Grove is like nothing you have seen before. It's quite run down and has a definite FL back road attraction feel. The kids love that we can feed... More

Always wanted to check this place out, glad I did, I won't go back. Animals were interesting and pretty well taken care of. The of the rest of the place is very old and dirty.

It boggles my mind that people give this terrible, dirty, sad place good ratings. The animals are quite neglected with feces everywhere. The bunny cage smelled like death. There was definitely something dead down its dirt rabbit hole. The ponies are dirty with overgrown hooves and matted manes. The monkeys are deteriorating mentally and are fed donuts, popcorn and bread... More

Great place for little money! Don't think that your going to a modern park. but love the independence of strolling all over and never knowing what you would see next. If you have little money and a lot of kids........ This is the place for you! A lot of history if you take time to read it. We loved feeding... More

I don't know where to begin. We happened to drive by this place one day a few months back. Looking for somewhere affordable to take the family i remembered this place. Its an older Florida roadside attraction I believe that opened in the 60s. Its known for being a citrus grove since the late 1800s. While they sell and ship... More

Boyett's is a Brooksville tradition from days gone by. There is delicious fresh fruit , souvenirs, a zoo and ice cream. What a delightful way to spend some time.

The place is not glamorous at all, nor is it modern. The staff is very nice and the animals look happy and clean. The prices is great and they give you (for a small fee) a bag to take with you to feed the animals. They have a great variety and your kids will love it. Please note: the dinosaur... More

This is an older Florida attraction that is great for younger children. The animals all appear to be well taken care of and the pens were all clean. Looking forward to bringing our grandkids here on their next visit.
