A.B. Michael, Citrus Entrepreneur (1877–1964) The Michael family came to the Indian River area in the 1880s and planted citrus on the island (Orchid Island). Alfred operated a trading schooner on the river in the early years and then opened a general store. He consolidated his holdings in citrus with others to form the Deerfield Groves and helped organize the Indian River Citrus League and the Florida Citrus Mutual in Lakeland. He was instrumental in marketing and branding the “Indian River Citrus” labeling and was voted the “Dean of Citrus.” FLOR500, Garden 333
