University of Florida Extension Lake County

As part of Lake County's commitment to public health and safety, UF/IFAS Lake County Extension office (aka the Ag Center) will provide services in a modified format to help prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Visitors will be limited to one person or party in the lobby at one time. Live class sizes are limited to allow social distancing. Please call 352-343-4101 for more information.

Our Extension agents, and their support staff, are working tirelessly to make online learning opportunities available to our community. Some of the efforts currently underway include online educational programs that address everything from pasture management to peach production. Our website and our Facebook page are being updated regularly as these resources become available. Additionally, agents are available via email (see list below) and are happy to schedule in-person, videoconferencing and telephone consultations with our clients.

We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate these uncharted waters. We are all in this together and we will get through this together.

All of these groups share in the planning, financing, and operation of extension programs. In Florida, the Cooperative Extension Service is administered by the University of Florida. Our office provides extension agents in the areas of:
