Florida Farm Bureau Day Frequently Asked Questions
What is Florida Farm Bureau Day?
Florida Farm Bureau Day is on March 8, 2023. It’s a day established to spread the message about the importance of Florida agriculture. Our members advocate for top priority issues with state legislators at our State Capitol for the 2022 Legislative Session.
Why Should I Attend?
Florida Farm Bureau Day is one day to join fellow farm families and agriculturists to speak up to your legislators about the issues that impact your farm or rural community. It’s a time to show our strength in numbers and have our voices collectively heard at the State Capitol. By attending, you are truly making a difference to the future of agriculture in our state.
How Does Farm Bureau Day Work?
Florida Farm Bureau Day will kick-off with a breakfast at the civic center, followed by an orientation and quick legislative briefing with fellow agricultural peers and colleagues. Guest speakers include lawmakers and other state officials. This orientation will prepare Florida Farm Bureau members for appointments at the Capitol. We’ll provide you with talking points and other resources so that you will be prepared before you meet with your elected officials and their staff. After the briefing breakfast, you’ll head over to the Capitol for your appointments with legislators.
What’s the Taste of Florida Agriculture Event?
The Taste of Florida Agriculture Reception is a joint venture between Florida Farm Bureau and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. It will complete our day of advocacy and is free and open to the public at the Capitol courtyard from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. This event will give everyone an opportunity to meet with Florida farm families and sample locally grown fresh food. It is a casual and fun reception where the general public has the opportunity to network with state lawmakers and visit with the farmers and ranchers who grow our food.
