Jim and Lynda Fenton, founders of Fenco Farms, have a long-standing history in Florida’s agricultural industry. Their beginning started in the citrus business and eventually expanded into strawberries, all while maintaining a cattle operation. As markets in Florida began to change, and the citrus industry took a hit, the Fenton’s saw a coming need to turn that farmland into pastureland in order to grow the cattle operation. This pivotal shift also presented the Fenton’s growing business with the opportunity to acquire more land and further their expansion into the cattle industry. Fenco Farms now has pastures throughout beautiful Central Florida, located in Citrus, Lake, Marion, Pasco and Sumter Counties. At the end of 2021 the Fenton’s once again had the opportunity to expand the business into South Georgia.
They have strived to develop, over the last 30 years, three main divisions which are Registered Brangus, Club Calf, and Commercial cow calf. Genetic data has been used to enhance the best traits in each of the breeding programs to fit our goals and the needs of our customers.
