Summarizing FDACS-DPI’s recent social media activity

Florida agriculture by the numbers

SealColorSmalllHere is a reference work worthy of inclusion in your digital library: Florida Agriculture: By the Numbers from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services provides in-depth and u–to-date statistics broken down by commodity and county, making it safe to say FDACS “wrote the book” on Florida agriculture!

heart-roses1Valentine’s Day provided an opportunity to re-post our most popular blog entry of all time, created in 2011 and well worth another look.




Guacamole is good anytime!
Our Superbowl blog entry featured some great Guacamole recipes. But guac from Florida avocados isn’t just for Superbowl, or just for weekends, for that matter. It’s good anytime you need a tasty, healthy snack!

Fun at the Fair
We had a great time at the Florida State Fair.

Apropos of nothing related to DPI’s mission of protecting agriculture, did anyone else notice the “European Food” trailer at the fair? It featured “exotic” fair like Reuben sandwiches, barbecue and sausages.

Our Insect Encounter displays at the Ag Hall of Fame building were, as always, popular with fairgoers.

And, of course, we couldn’t resist posting this shot of a baby goat climbing on Mama to butt heads with the neighbors.
