About the EAA

Farmers provide Americans’ tables with fresh, homegrown vegetables, fruits and grains. The Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) is among the most fertile farmland in the United States and is the largest supplier of winter vegetables including sweet corn, radishes, green beans, lettuce and other leafy greens, as well as rice and sugarcane. Florida wouldn’t be what it is today with the strong farming communities that produce wholesome delicious food.

EAA Farmers is a coalition of mostly family-owned farms and farming businesses who provide farming education and advocate for the protection of homegrown food and local farmland. By joining our voices together, we are effective advocates on issues important to the economic viability of farms in the EAA.
