“Go For The Gold” - Area Peanut Producers Are Prepared for a Great Year

At the 36th annual meeting of the Florida Peanut Producers Association meeting on Thursday evening at the Agricultural Center there was a sense of anticipation as the room full of Florida peanut farmers are preparing for planting the 2011 crop. This crop promises great returns for their efforts, as peanut prices on the international market have surged upward, along with most other commodities.
The main job now is to get the seeds into the ground, nurture their growth, pray for good weather, and watch it develop until harvest. Lets all hope for a bountiful harvest in 2011.
The master of ceremonies for the event was Larry Ford, President of the Association and active peanut farmer in Jackson County. After the invocation and pledge of allegiance, Ford introduced special guests in the audience, and recognized those who had worked on preparing for the meeting.
