GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida Farm Bureau Federation will celebrate football and agriculture by serving as the game-day sponsor for the Florida State University vs. Southern Miss game on Sept. 9 at Doak Campbell Stadium and again for the University of Florida homecoming game against Vanderbilt University on Oct. 7 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Both tailgate events are free to the public and will provide football fans with an interactive agricultural experience that highlights assorted products grown statewide. The event will also include educational exhibits, games, food samples and activities for the whole family.
In addition to the interactive exhibit, there will be an on-field recognition for the Florida Farm Bureau Farmer of the Year and farm families who practice environmental stewardship.
“Farmers and ranchers are essential to the success and growth of the economy,” said Florida Farm Bureau President Jeb S. Smith. “The Home Field AGvantage provides an opportunity to celebrate agriculture and bring awareness to the importance of our farmers and ranchers and how we are all connected by the food and products they produce.”
