Agriculture & Natural Resources

The importance of agriculture in Crisp County’s economy is exemplified by its annual Farm Gate value exceeding $99 million dollars annually over the past few years. Preserving and improving the production of the diverse array of commodities grown in the county is the top priority for Crisp’s Agricultural and Natural Resource (ANR) Program. This priority also spills over into assisting with our homeowners in ornamental, garden and turfgrass management.
