Lykes Heirs | No. 14

615,000 ACRES

In 1900, patriarch Howell Tyson Lykes shuttered his medical practice in favor of growing citrus and raising cattle with his seven sons on 500 acres near Brooksville, Florida. Today, family-owned Lykes Bros. maintains large landholdings in Florida and in Far West Texas. Raising Brangus cattle on these properties is a core business, as is forestry, hunting, and land and water resources. In July 2019, LYKES BROS. began a new chapter by naming Johnnie James Jr. as the company’s new president and CEO. “As a fifth-generation Floridian, it is an honor to join the Lykes Bros. organization that has been so instrumental in influencing and contributing to the growth and success of Tampa and the state of Florida at large,” said James in a press release.
