Welcome to Madison County!

Located only 17 miles northeast of Athens-Clarke County and the University of Georgia, Madison County covers 285 square miles in the Piedmont region of Northeast Georgia. Madison County's number one industry is agriculture. According to the 2017 UGA Farm Gate Report, Madison County is #2 in agricultural production, with a total farm gate value of more than $520 Million.

Much of the agriculture in the county is centered around Georgia's large poultry industry, but Madison County also has a diversified agriculture, with many acres devoted to beef cattle, goats, and sheep; hay, soybeans, and small grains; as well as timber production and several small vegetable farms that raise produce for farmers markets.

Madison County 4-H Fundraisers

If you would like to make a generous donation towards our general Extension and 4-H funds, or designate funds to a specific activity like summer camp, please contact our office.
