Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.


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 residing in Miami-Dade County.

Questions or comments should be directed to the Agricultural Manager's Office at 305-971-5091 or [email protected].
