Georgia Agriculture

Georgia’s dedicated and diligent farmers deserve all the credit for the state’s booming agriculture industry. Contributing close to $72.5 billion each year to the state’s economy, Georgia agriculture encompasses everything from broilers, beef cattle and pecans to food processing and agricultural education programs. The Peach State is home to 42,258 farms encompassing more than 9.5 million acres of land, each with an average size of 228 acres. The land is rich with a variety of soils ideal for agriculture. This combined with the fact that most of the state has a humid subtropical climate with mild winters and hot moist summers, Georgia is an ideal place to farm a variety of commodities.

Without the farmers and ranchers who work that land, committing their lives to agriculture, the state’s top industry wouldn’t be near as successful. Many hardworking Georgians form the backbone of the state’s agriculture. In fact, one in every seven Georgians works in agriculture, forestry or a related industry.
