Family-owned, family care
Established in 1976 on seven acres of land in Homestead, Florida, Lyons Farms was the realization of the lifelong dream of Dan Lyons. More than three decades later, the family-owned and operated company has grown to 125 acres, which includes mangos of countless varieties, papayas, lychees, bananas and many other tropical fruits.
Our operation is located in prime territory – Homestead, a farming community in South Florida that is blessed with ideal weather for growing crops year-round. South Florida is absolutely unique to the U.S. in that it is the only true sub-tropical zone where crops such as mangos and papayas thrive.
Ever mindful of the environment, we carefully strive to harvest the best possible crops. Practicing sustainable agriculture is one of our primary goals. We properly maintain our land so that it can improve over time, supplement our soils with compost, carefully add fertilizer when needed, and apply crop protection chemicals only when necessary. We are conservationists who take the extra step of providing water, shelter, and specific crops that encourage the habitation of our abundant native plants and animals because we value and care about wildlife.
Lyons Farms is a true family farm. Founder Daniel Lyons is joined by his wife of 40 years, Jane, and their two sons, Daniel and Michael, in caring for the business. In 2008, Daniel Jr.’s wife, Megan, joined the farm, as well, strengthening the family’s workplace.
During a time when much of our country’s productive capacity has left our borders, we are proud to be a patriotic family producing food on American soil.
