This week’s featured video was produced by Florida Farm Bureau to share the story of Jerry Dakin, Dakin Diary Farms who was selected as Florida’s entry to compete in the Sunbelt Ag Expo’s Swisher Sweet Farmer of the Year recognition.  Dakin was one of 11 farmers who were honored at the Sunbelt Ag Expo.  Robert Suanders, Virginia, was this year’s overall winner at the Expo, but I thought you might enjoy learning more about the Florida farmer who was highlighted this year.  Unfortunately, the Dakin Dairy was one of the farms devastated by Hurricane Ian, but that does not take away from the prestigious recognition bestowed by Florida Farm Bureau prior to that event.
