Supporting and promoting organic and sustainable agriculture since 1987
Celebrating 30 years of fighting for organic farmers! 

Florida Organic Growers (FOG) has carried out its mission for 30 years by providing communities throughout the state with programs and resources that promote and support organic and sustainable agriculture and local and just food systems.

From beginning as a grassroots organization with the office located in someone’s kitchen or an unused corner of a barn to an established organization with programs that educate producers, consumers, institutions and governments about the benefits of organic and sustainable agriculture, FOG has continually made an impact in communities around Florida!
