T.J. Flowers
Vice President of Operations

As a 2003 graduate of Texas A&M, T.J. Flowers has been in the produce business for over 10 years. During this time he has had the opportunity to work in nearly every area of the business including produce brokerage, import sales and domestic sales. Since joining forces with Jud Flowers and Trent Bishop to create Lone Star Citrus Growers in 2007, he has added operations management and production management to that list of experience.

T.J. learned early in his career that having a “customer centric” attitude on the sales desk boosts the quality and quantity of orders that come in.

T.J. learned early in his career that having a “customer centric” attitude on the sales desk boosts the quality and quantity of orders that come in. He applies this same outlook with Lone Star Citrus after his sales day is done and the production day kicks into high gear. That is why, during the season, you can find him at the office after-hours ensuring that all the hard work of the sales team is turned into reality through seamless production protocol. This type of oversight benefits the customer in that they get exactly what they want, when they want it, with minimal wait times…every time!

T.J. stays current in his industry knowledge and relations by networking through events such as the Texas Produce Convention and the Produce Marketing Association. He is also active within the local citrus community by sitting on the boards of Texas Citrus Mutual and the Texas Valley Citrus Committee.

Together with his wife of over 10 years, T.J. and April Flowers have two beautiful daughters – Lily and Maddie. T.J. and April enjoy travel and have made it a point to do it at every opportunity. Whether it is a concert/sports venue across state or historic landmark/museum across the ocean, these two want to see it all as part of their “work hard, play hard” philosophy.
