    I’m an agriculture student finishing up my AA in the fall, hoping to transfer to UF by 2011. I try to spread the teachings of Thoreau and Emerson as much as possible, and encourage people to learn how much work goes into just one meal from farmers. Your facebook page not only helps bring to light how strong the Agricultural economy and community is in our beautiful state, but also helps the general population understand how important farming is, always has been and always will be in not just our state, or country, but the entire world. Thank you for your work and dedication.

    Agriculture is a vital part of Florida’s economy that I will never take for granted. Our farmers work hard for a living while helping to feed our nation. What does that old bumper sticker say? “Don’t complain about the farmer with your mouth full.”

    Thank a farmer when your mouth is full, is still the best saying. And to all the farmers who give away fresh produce to the elderly or the hungry, Thank You!

  61. April 13, 2010 11:25 am

    Congratulations from me! But, we gotta get that number much higher! Farming has been and still is a part of the backbone to our Florida commerce and heritage. I work at getting that number higher still.

    I’m a fan and have even referred a case of many mis-labeled boxes of leather leaf fern (several refrigerated containers, floor to ceiling, front to back, full!) that was marked as “Fresh from Florida” that had originated outside of the United States to Florida Department of Agriculture’s Law Enforcement unit…
