  • Happy birthday. Thank you so much for all of the wonderful news that you share. I just sent my email as well.

  • Being a child in the ’60’s in Polk County Florida, in the Citrus Capital of the World at that time & a of a citrus industry family, I remember the upset caused when Central Florida orange groves were being purchased en masse around 1966. My family, like many others, were afraid of future bankruptcy.

    However, in 1965 my family had traveled to the New York World’s Fair and seen there the marvels and imagination of Walt Disney. When it was announced in 1966 that the orange groves in Central Florida were actually purchased by Walt & Roy Disney my father knew his citrus grove fertilizer spreader company, Conibear Equipment, Inc., would be just fine. All these years later the company is still open!

    Walt & Roy – thank you!
