No. 34. Collier Family
280,000 acres (down 2,472-acres)
Patriarch Barron Collier’s 1922 purchase of a 200-acre citrus grove became the cornerstone of the clan’s agricultural interests in Southwest Florida. The Colliers remain actively involved in cattle and citrus at their Immokalee Ranch. They also participate in sod production and bioresearch focused on drought-tolerant turfgrass.
