The award has been presented annually since 1994 and recognizes environmentally innovative growers and ranchers who share a commitment to protect and preserve Florida’s resources while successfully producing world-class agriculture.
Rocking K is based in Odessa, Island Grove Wine Company in Hawthorne and Brite Leaf Citrus near Lake Panasoffkee.
