The Thayer Family — five generations of citrus growers.

“Growers Producing Products to Meet the Needs of Other Growers”

Tom Thayer, Sr.’s, great grandparents planted their first citrus grove in Avon Park, Florida, in 1910. Since then, citrus has remained in the family. Sam and Tommy — part of the current generation of growers — own groves together under the company name T & S Groves. Tommy also owns Southern Citrus Nursery and T-Two Grove Care. Ginny Dunson is the eldest child and has her own interior design business – Ginny’s Creative Design – and own citrus with her husband Les Dunson III, who owns Dunson Harvesting. Citrus really does run in the Thayer blood.

“We feel honored to be a part of such a great industry.”

Sam and Tommy are the first of the family to plant blueberries and now have 78 acres of blueberries with their company Thayer Berry Hill. The brothers are also growing 3 acres of peaches behind Maxijet and Mister Landscaper as a trial.

“ I am really excited about the opportunities as a grower in Florida and the privilege to make several quality low-volume irrigation products to efficiently water these various crops”  Sam Thayer, President/CEO, Maxijet, Inc.
