Ben Hill Griffin Jr. started his business more than 70 years ago with a 10-acre orange grove and a small citrus packinghouse. Now, the company has become Ben Hill Griffin Inc. and is run by his grandson, Ben Hill Griffin IV, who oversees thousands of acres of citrus groves and a commercial cattle ranch.
