It’s more important than ever for agriculture to make its voice heard in Tallahassee this year and one way to do that is the Florida Farm Bureau legislative day reception that will be held March 18 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center. Tickets for Farm Bureau members are available at local county Farm Bureau offices for $10 each.
