With funding assistance from the State of Florida and a grant from the United States Department of Agricultural (USDA), the Agricultural Center will provide an indoor assembly area for product expos, trade fairs, and 4-H competitions. Master Gardeners, Family and Community Educators, Cattlemen’s Association and a host of other agencies will also utilize the new facility.
The new agricultural center will also be home to a centralized farmer’s market to support local farmers and sell locally grown produce and other commodities. The William M.

The projected completion date of the Agricultural Center is set for June 2020.
