Vegetable Production

Fruit and vegetable production is a major industry in Florida.  Nationally Florida ranks second in the value of vegetables and melon production, fifth in all crops.  In Escambia County we have farmers who grow sweet corn, tomatoes, okra,watermelons, blueberries, squash, peas, butterbeans,  and many other crops.  To find some of these growers, check out the Naturally EscaRosa website—a site dedicated to the development and promotion of Agritourism in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, Florida.   If growing your own fresh produce is your goal, we have several publications that could make your life a little easier.
