In 1863, Tobias MacIvey created MacIvey Cattle Company, and we’ve been expanding our businesses ever since. During the lifetime of Zech MacIvey, oranges were including in the list of products that we provide. Solomon MacIvey was who took our small family business and made it into an empire, creating the produce and realty companies, creating the MacIvey State Bank, and La Florida, a grand hotel in Miami. Due to the wishes of Solomon MacIvey and Toby Cypress, as well as the principles that the older MacIvey’s lived their lives on, the realty business, bank and hotel have been closed. Read about the history of each separate business, our family, as well as the modern-day company in the separate tabs.
