In 2017 Holmes County agricultures primary commodities consisted of 7,642 acres of peanuts, 4,854 acres of cotton, 2,439 acres of soybeans, and 27,500 head of beef cattle. 

UF/IFAS Extension Holmes County works to serve all the agricultural producers within Holmes County by providing a local connection to the farmers and ranchers, to the University of Florida, their research, and resources. 

These services are provided through three avenues:

Field Visits: This is the grassroots of extension. Fields visits can be arranged through the Holmes County office by calling Kalyn Waters at 850-547-1108. This is your opportunity to bring all the University of Florida has to offer to your farm. Field visits can be for a range of different topics such as weed identification and pasture management, crop disease or pest issues, cattle health, and herd management.

Office Visit/ Phone Consults: Clients are welcome to stop by the office located at the Holmes County Agricultural Center to meeting one-on-one with the agent for a consultation. Phone consultation is also available at any time by calling 850-547-1108. 

Educational Programming: Throughout the year educational programs, workshops, and field days are hosted for clients across the county. Dates for these programs can be found in the Holmes County Agricultural Connection, a printed bi-monthly newsletter that is distributed via the mail. In addition, clients are encouraged to follow the Facebook page, Panhandle Agricultural Connection
