About the Florida Agricultural Resource Museum


The Florida Agricultural Museum was established in 1983 by a group of concerned agriculturalists and historians at the request of Agricultural Commissioner Doyle Conner to help preserve this important part of Florida's heritage. Originally located in Tallahassee, the museum was part of the Division of

Agriculture and Consumer Services.


In 1992, it was designated the “Museum of Agriculture and Rural History of the State of Florida” under Florida Statute. In 1997, the Florida Agricultural Museum moved to its new home on 460 acres in Flagler County. All of the Museum’s buildings were moved from their original locations and renovated with grant funds provided by the Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources.

Adam Putnam, current Commissioner of Agriculture, will continue the tradition of Commissioners Doyle Conner, Bob Crawford, Terrie Rhodes, and Charles Bronson by working to educate Floridians about the history, importance and contributions of agriculture to our state. Commissioner Putnam, a Florida farmer himself, understands the issues facing agriculture in Florida and the nation. His leadership will ensure that Florida agriculture continues to be a strong and growing component of our state’s economy and in feeding the people of Florida, our nation and other countries.

 

The museum is open to the general public for walk-in tours as well

as educational field trips. Please call for more information. 386-446-7630.
