No. 12 Lykes Heirs
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.
