2015 Land Report 100: Lykes Heirs


No. 12 Lykes Heirs

615,000 acres
From Florida orange juice to beef cattle in Texas, the Lykes family remains one of the most prominent agribusiness clans south of the Mason-Dixon line with a net worth north of $1 billion. Innovations with mechanical harvesters helped streamline operations at some 30,000 acres of Lykes Citrus groves, which produced more than 35 million gallons of orange juice. In addition to integrated cow-calf operations, Lykes Ranch also sets standards with its highly productive sugar cane and forestry programs.
