Agriculture

Small farmers hope to cash in on interest in buying local.

Cynthia Barnett | 1/1/2007

Marketplace: Interest is growing in weekly farmers markets offering locally grown produce -- like this one in downtown St. Petersburg.

Homegrown

? The market for kosher foods is expanding in Florida, where more than 450 companies produce or sell kosher goods. The "kosher from Florida" logo program, endorsed by the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami, helps Florida growers and makes it easier for consumers to find kosher foods.

Products produced in state and approved by a nationally recognized kashrut-certifying organization are eligible for the logo.

Loop Retires

Volusia County fern grower John Hoblick replaces Carl B. Loop of Jacksonville as Florida Farm Bureau president.

Loop retired from the state's largest agricultural organization after 23 years as president.
