Farmers and ranchers from across the Sunshine State will convene at the
state Capitol on March 8 to discuss key state policy issues with Florida lawmakers.
They will gather as part of Farm Bureau Day on Wednesday, March 8, 2023. While at the Capitol, the agriculturists will present their responsible and practical policy perspectives on key public policy matters. The day will begin with a legislative briefing breakfast and proceed with a full schedule of legislative meetings on Farm Bureau priority issues.
“Farm Bureau Day is essential to our grassroots process,” said Florida Farm Bureau President Jeb S. Smith. “Farm families can share their personal stories with elected officials on how legislation can impact their ability to grow the food, fiber and product that we all depend on.”
The Taste of Florida Agriculture evening reception will wrap up the day from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Capitol Courtyard, featuring special guest speakers Commissioner of Agriculture Wilton Simpson and Florida Farm Bureau President Jeb S. Smith. This event is one of the most attended legislative receptions of the year.
The Taste of Florida Agriculture reception is a free public event where guests can sample locally- grown Florida foods, meet farm families and learn more about the benefits of agriculture for everyone in our state.
