BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) - Agriculture is Georgia's oldest industry, and even after many years, it is still the largest.
Farmers and other business leaders in Bulloch County gathered for their annual Farm City Breakfast to discuss the impact agriculture has on the local economy.
State Representative Jon Burns served as the keynote speaker. He noted that farming brings an estimated $137 million to Bulloch County's economy, even if it's not as visible as other commodities.
"We take for granted things that we see every day. But the production of food and fiber in rural communities makes it still our number one industry," said Rep. Burns.
Also, Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black helped announce local businessman Raybon Anderson as the Chamber of Commerce's Agriculture Partner of the Year.
