Lake Okeechobee Business Alliance:

A Social Welfare Nonprofit Organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the communities and farmland that make up the Lake Okeechobee Region. 


This site is intended to provide real facts about current issues threatening our Region and supply visitors with the tools and information needed to help build a unified voice and support economic growth.

Lake Okeechobee has been in the media a lot this year about the water quality, algae and releases in South Florida. Hopefully this video will help you see the Lake as I see most everyday. Lake Okeechobee is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and is full of fish, Alligators, Birds and Manatees.

Farming in the Everglades Agricultural Area is Under Attack

Funded by wealthy, out of state billionaire hedge fund managers, environmental activists across Florida are attacking Florida’s sugarcane farmers in the name of "environmental" causes. These attacks distort the truth, cast hard-working farmers as villains, and disrupt the livelihoods of the people of the Glades communities.

We encourage you to join us and get involved.
