Georgia Farm Bureau is partnering with the Georgia Department of Agriculture to finance a new permanent exhibit building at the Sunbelt Ag Expo, which will be held in October in Moultrie. The building will be dedicated with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18, the opening day of Expo. All GFB members are invited.

“We’re excited about partnering with the Sunbelt Ag Expo and the Georgia Department of Agriculture to create a permanent exhibit space that will educate Expo visitors about the farmers who grow their food and how they do it,” GFB President Zippy Duvall said. “It’s a natural fit that Georgia’s largest general farm organization would join with the state department of agriculture and Sunbelt Expo to promote Georgia’s number one industry.”
