Stewards of the land
It starts with a love of the land and a commitment to the future.
With this in hand, we are driven to look at every detail, and consider every impact. We push the boundaries to learn more in the field of agronomy and adopt the new technologies that will preserve and sustain our land and resources. From land conservation to integrated pest management, we farm with the future generations in mind.
We are a family of families
From farm to table, goodness comes from the hands and hearts of the people and communities along the way. From employer funded housing and employee profit share programs to local school and food bank donations, we are growing more than delicious citrus. We are humbled and energized by the opportunities to bring positive change to the lives of all those involved.
Pushing the industry forward
A FOCUS ON ROOT & SOIL HEALTH
Optimum water and nutrient uptake promote vibrant plant health and resource conservation. A true win-win. We use techniques such as natural Mycorrhiza, organic compositing and precision irrigation.
High-density plantings allow us to return higher yields per acre, feeding the world more on a smaller imprint. Today, we reset our groves at an average of 300 trees per acre in the field and are experimenting with up to 1,000 trees per acre in controlled environments.
It is with optimism and vision that we research, trial and test new root stock and natural hybrids in order to continuously improve our yields in the grove and meet evolving consumer trends in the aisle.
CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT AGRICULTURE
By growing citrus in a controlled environment under protective screens, we are able to focus on soil health, beneficial insects and water conservation. The end results are a more sustainable form of agriculture and healthy trees that provide higher yields of deliciously sweet citrus.
PRECISION AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY
Precision agriculture such as GIS, GPS, Lidar, drone technology and smart tractors are instrumental in our grove production. Through the use of these technologies, we are able to accomplish more with less and continuously adopt exciting innovation that move our industry forward.

Where tradition meets innovation
The future of citrus is bright
The Florida Citrus industry must rely on innovative growing technologies and a fearless commitment to increase yields and deliver the oh-so sweet taste that Florida citrus is known for. The traditions of soil science and farming land responsibility continue to guide us as we invest in higher density plantings and Citrus Under Protective Screen (CUPS).
Fresh & healthy makes it all worthwhile
What we do is not nearly as important as why we do it. We are passionate about bringing fresh and nutritious products to families and supporting healthy lifestyles. We are proud to be part of a community of global farmers who seek to feed the world in a way that sustains our environment and gifts future generations with health and wellness.
