About Us

Who We Are and What We Do

The Union County Extension Office is a cooperatively funded service of the University of Florida / IFAS/ Cooperative Extension Service in a partnership with USDA and the Union County Board of County Commissioners.


Our Mission

"to develop knowledge in agricultural resources, human resources, natural resources and life sciences to make that knowledge accessible to people to sustain the quality of human life."


In Union County we do this by conducting educational programs. Education content and emphasis is based on recommendations of the Agriculture and Family, (4-H) Youth, and Community Sciences Program Advisory Committees. Individuals representing Union County residents serve on these working committees to guide, review, and account for Extension Staff and Volunteer educational program efforts.
