After more than 47 years under the name Latt Maxcy Corporation, and over 100 years of pioneering spirit in the citrus industry, the company remains dedicated to the responsible stewardship of more than 6,000 acres of citrus lands. The grove operations are probably one of the most geographically diverse operations in Florida covering 8 counties. This diversity was done by design to help insulate the company from a complete loss caused by a possible freeze or hurricane.

All grove divisions are on the Best Management Practice (BMP) program outlined by the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). The latest in chemical and fertilizer application technologies are used which allow for exact materials placement. These methods are the most beneficial treatment for citrus trees and the added benefit is lower amounts of waste, which in turn decreases production costs.

The Latt Maxcy groves continue to harvest Valencia and Hamlin round oranges, grapefruit and select specialty fruit that are all processed for juice or packed fresh.


The Latt Maxcy Ranch was originally part of a 150,000+ acre ranch assembled by the late Latimer Maxcy in the early 1900s. In recent strategic moves, Latt Maxcy sold 35,000 acres to the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) in the mid-1990’s for the Kissimmee River Project and 27,000 acres to the Pugliese Company in 2005 for future development.

The Ranch has several thousand acres of active citrus and potato fields, and the remaining 35,000+ acres are used for cattle lease operations.

Latt Maxcy’s primary ranch property is located in the center of Florida, along both the Kissimmee River and SR 60. The Ranch has access to both coasts via SR 60, as well as the State’s major north/south corridors (the Florida Turnpike, I-95 to the east and I-75 to the west). The property’s location provides access to all of Florida’s major markets, as well as the Tampa, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville ports.
