Dennis Holbrook grew up in a citrus and row crop farming family. After returning from Texas A&I University, he rejoined the family business, and in 1977, he purchased the family citrus operation from his father. He soon became disillusioned with and concerned about conventional farming. As a result, South Tex Organics, L.C. was established in 1984. Dennis decided farming organically was the best way to grow the most nutritious and best tasting citrus.
Dennis has taken an active part in the growth of the organic industry in his state. He is a member of the Organic Trade Association (OTA). He is a founding member of the Texas Organic Growers Association (TOGA) serving as President and Chairman of the Board. In 1989, Dennis was appointed by the Agriculture Commissioner to serve on the first Texas Department of Agriculture’s (TDA) Organic Certification Review & Standards Advisory Committee.
