Hurricane Ian Resources

Welcome to our Hurricane Ian resources page. We have collected an array of resources that may be helpful as our farm families  throughout Florida prepare and recover from Hurricane Ian.  We will continue to add resources to this page as they become available.

In the event you need to file a claim, contact Florida Farm Bureau Insurance at 1-866-275-7322. 

Agricultural Losses and Damages

Preliminary reports indicate catastrophic levels of flooding and wind damage to crops, livestock, structures and infrastructure throughout Florida due to Hurricane Ian. However, requests for data and verified information will be needed to inform relief efforts. Farmers and ranchers are encouraged to complete the assessment survey developed by the UF/IFAS Economic Impact Analysis Program to help assess the impacts of the storm.
