Agriculture

Miami-Dade County’s Agricultural industry is one of the most diverse in the country. Our tropical climate provides us with a year-round growing season, as well as the ability to produce an extremely wide range of crops.

Employing more than 20,000 people and producing more than $2.7 billion in economic impact each year, the industry is a valuable resource for Miami-Dade County. Coupled with the economic benefits are environmental and aesthetic advantages.

A farmer's land, in addition to producing crops, also acts as open space that allows for water recharge areas and wildlife habitat, providing a benefit to all residents of Miami-Dade County.

To contact the Agricultural Manager's Office, call 305-971-5091 or email agriculture@miamidade.gov.
