Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs along with many other community leaders and elected officials attended in support for the local agricultural community and their invaluable efforts.

"I am proud to celebrate the industry's success and hard work in keeping agriculture strong in Orange County," Mayor Jacobs said. "As Florida's largest general agricultural organization, the Orange County Farm Bureau assists in upholding the state's reputation as a national leader in the agriculture and farming sector. Our farming heritage remains a key part of our culture, and continues to be a tremendous generator of jobs and commerce."

During the event, the Bureau’s board of directors gave an update on the nursery industry, agricultural lending and overall industry needs.

The Central Florida economy and local community are impacted greatly by the invaluable contributions of local farmers and ranchers. La Oficina de Agricultura del Condado de Orange hace todo lo posible por garantizar que el sector agrícola del Condado se mantenga competitivo además de promover la administración responsable del medio ambiente y las tutorías para los estudiantes de agronomía.

The Orange County Farm Bureau is a part of the Florida Farm Bureau Federation and was founded to promote and protect the agricultural interests of farmers and ranchers as they work to responsibly provide an abundant food supply using Florida’s natural resources.

According to the University of Florida, there are 193,688 jobs in Orange County that are related to agriculture and related industries. El Condado de Orange, especialmente la zona oeste del Condado de Orange, es líder en la industria de cítricos.
