Our path here has been long but rewarding, and we can't wait until you are able to see it for yourself. From everyone at the Obloy Family Ranch, welcome!


Discover Our Historic Property

Obloy Family Ranch is located on a historic property in Merritt Island, Florida. The property dates back to the 1890s when it operated as a navel orange grove and later transitioned to become one of Florida's first gator ranches. 

In 2015, the Obloy family purchased the ranch and helped transform the property into a  wildlife sanctuary and farm, adding horseback riding trails, restoring and restocking freshwater ponds, and adding a new event venue, the Barn Stall Winery & Wedding Barn.

Contact us for a fun-filled family adventure to be remembered.


Learn About Wildlife Conservation

We focus on wildlife preservation and value education on conservation, culture, and history.

The gator pens remain so we can educate our visitors on the aquaculture that takes place in this region & through our efforts, the old gator ranch located here has become a wildlife sanctuary.
