"It was a profoundly humbling experience to have been selected as the recipient of the prestigious Agricultural Advocacy Award from the Dade County Farm Bureau for my steadfast support of our local agriculture industry and its significant impact on our South Florida economy," said Commissioner Bell. "As long as I am a County Commissioner, and a public servant, my commitment to our agriculture industry is resolute!"

The Dade County Farm Bureau was founded and nurtured by a group of dedicated individuals in agriculture who recognized the need for a general farm organization which could serve as a collective voice for its members. For over 60 years, the Dade County Farm Bureau has been an integral part of the agricultural community, bringing farmers together to solve issues collectively. Today, the Dade County Farm Bureau has over 800 grower members, making it the largest agricultural organization in Miami-Dade County.
