The citrus industry has called Florida home, dating back to the early 1500’s, when Spanish explorers planted the first orange trees in St. Augustine, Florida. Unbeknownst to them at the time, the planting of those orange trees would become the birth of an industry that grosses billions of dollars every year and feeds the appetite of a country thirsting for the best tasting oranges available.
For centuries, farming, and citrus growing, has been predominantly a man’s industry. But one entrepreneur and mother of two has been trailblazing her way into the hearts and health of Americans everywhere with her squeezed fresh juices – and her mission to keep families healthy.
