Communities Rooted in Agriculture.

The Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA), leads the State of Florida and all counties east of the Mississippi River and is one of the ten largest agricultural producing areas in the United States. Palm Beach County has more agriculture than any other county in Florida, with 40% of its land actively farmed. In the South Florida region, Palm Beach County alone generated $1.41 billion in total agricultural sales in 2014-15, ranking it among the top ten counties for highest agricultural revenue in the nation.

The EAA provides:

  • sweet corn to supply 1 billion people an ear a day for two months

  • rice to feed 150 million people one time a day for two months

  • lettuce for a billion salads a year

  • 36 million pounds of radishes annually

  • 120 million stalks of celery a year

  • cabbage to make 250 million servings of coleslaw a year

  • 350 million servings of green beans a year

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

The activists regularly blame sugarcane farmers for the Lake Okeechobee releases that are controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Their central mission is to persuade the state of Florida and the federal government to buy farmland in the name of environmental restoration—which would put sugarcane farmers out of business and have a crippling impact on the Everglades Region's economy.
