Military Agriculture Tour

Free Opportunity for Veterans to Find Careers Beyond the Field

Hillsborough County will host a free bus tour of local agriculture businesses to provide military veterans, reservists, transitioning active-duty personnel, and their spouses an opportunity to explore career options in the agriculture industry. Today's agriculture industries increasingly focus on using technology and management systems for the production of food, medicine, consumer products, and energy.

During the tour, participants will be introduced to career paths and job opportunities within modern production agriculture operations and supporting industries by visiting a variety of farming operations and the University of Florida Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in southern Hillsborough County.
