Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises


Did you know Florida supplies the fruits and vegetables for much of the country during the winter months?  From traditional citrus and cattle operations to the wide variety of specialty crops, Florida’s farms and farming systems are diverse!  Explore resources to support production and management of fruit and vegetable crops and consider integration of small livestock or organic production methods to extend the harvest season and diversify your revenue sources.  Become familiar with pest management options or take inspiration to expand into hydroponics.  Before launching into production, be sure to consider your marketing and postharvest plan, for solid sales of your harvest.  See our Direct MarketingAlternative EnterprisesBest Management Practices, and Planning and Management pages for companion information.
