More than growing plants we are about growing people. Our culture promotes personal development and career growth by encouraging work-life integration, continuous learning and improvement, and a supportive environment for taking risks, being creative and exploring your potential.


Beautify the environment for generations to come.


Our history is one that recounts visionary leadership, dedication to agriculture and a relentless ability to create opportunity out of adversity.

It serves as a testimony to our values of passion, continuous improvement, entrepreneurial spirit and embracing change. It has forged the company philosophy that diversification and vertical integration are critical to the healthy and steady growth of the collective operations.

And perhaps most importantly, our company history has allowed us to develop and cultivate endearing, valuable win-win relationships with our stakeholders, employees, customers, vendors and partners.

Founded by Michel and Veronique Sallin in 1985, Cherrylake is part of IMG Enterprises, Inc., a diversified group of companies specialized in Agribusiness and Land Management in Florida. IMG Enterprises, Inc. is made up of three main operational entities: Cherrylake IMG Citrus, and Legacy Wilderness Preserve; each company is a recognized leader in their industries. As part of the IMG Enterprises holding company, these operations are unified by their commitment to Florida agriculture and land preservation and a common ownership and leadership. Together, they create stability and financial strength that allow our individual operations and people to excel.


Through volunteering and charitable giving, we provide support that strengthens our local community. We encourage and support our employees to participate in charities and community outreach during company time and their own time — simply because we believe Cherrylakers can impact the world around them and beautify the the environment for generations to come.
