Season in Review

FSGA is proud to be an exhibitor at the Florida State Fair each year. This year Sarah, Glenda and our Florida Strawberry Growers Association Ambassadors helped man the booth. And, as you can see Jammer, our sought-after animated mascot, even made an appearance. If we do say so, our booth is one of the most popular booths at the Fair! After all, who doesn’t love fresh, flavorful, Florida strawberries?

The finest produce, livestock and poultry Florida has to offer the very latest farm equipment and technological advances in agriculture are featured at the Fair. More than 500 4-H members and nearly 1,000 FFA members exhibited a variety of farm animals including steers, dairy cows, swine, goats, poultry, rabbits, sheep, llamas and dogs.
