EAA Farmers President John S. Hundley paid us a visit during our April luncheon meeting. EAA Farmers is a coalition of mostly family-owned farms and farming businesses in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA), who have rallied together with a goal of advocating for the protection of their farms and to make their voices heard. The Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) is among the most fertile farmland in the world. EAA farms are the country's largest supplier of winter vegetables including sweet corn, radishes, green beans, lettuce and other leafy greens as well as sugarcane and rice.
