Since 1941 Florida Farm Bureau continues to Strengthen Family Farms and Communities. Celebrating our 72nd year, the Florida Farm Bureau Federation will host the 72nd Annual Meeting at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort in Ponte Vedra Beach on October 23-25, 2013. This year’s event promises to be one of the best, so please come and join other fellow Farm Bureau leaders to recognize and honor the volunteers who make our organization strong. This year’s theme, Many Voices…One Vision helps to remind us that Florida agriculture is more diverse than ever and is working harder to meet consumers’ demand for every kind of food choice one can imagine. Here, at our annual meeting, those diverse voices come together to speak for all of agriculture and ensure that we and our state remains on a path to productivity, profitability and success.
This year’s meeting is sure to be one you don’t want to miss!
