Walton County is home to over 600 farms encompassing over 140,000 acres. This land produces commodities such as cotton, peanuts, pecans, hay, cattle and small livestock. The Agriculture Program provides research-based information and assistance on all topics related to agriculture. The agriculture agent for Walton County is Kacey Aukema (firstname.lastname@example.org).
About 90% of the farms in Florida are considered small farms. Whatever your farm’s focus is, from hydroponic vegetables to pick-your-own operations, Extension can help. With access to the latest research and specialists in every field of study, we can offer advice and information on planting, harvesting, and everything in between.
