L.W. ScottL.W. Scott, the patriarch of the family, started farming vegetables and eventually became one of the largest tomato growers in the world, with farms in multiple countries. The vegetable farming background served him well when he decided to grow citrus, because his sense of urgency and attention to detail carried over well in growing high quality citrus. His love of farming and commitment to excellence is a legacy that continues to be carried on today.

“I grew up watching my father farm all over the world and his love and passion has continued to inspire younger generations of our family.”
