Jarrod’s leadership in Washington County agriculture is seen in his service to numerous agriculture organizations. He serves on the board of directors of both the Washington County Farm Bureau and the Washington County Cattlemen’s Association. He has served on the Washington County Extension Agriculture Advisory Committee and the Panhandle Peanut Advisory Committee.

Jarrod has also served as a Farm Service Agency director for the past four years. His farm has hosted several Beef Cattle Reproduction Management Schools conducted by the University of Florida Extension Service.

“Jarrod has lived his entire life on the farm. After graduating with a degree in marketing from Troy State University, he returned to live out a dream of raising a family on the farm he loves so dearly,” Andreasen said. “Jarrod is proud to be a part of the rich heritage of family farming in Washington County. He is very thankful for the sacrifices made by his grandfather, dad and uncle that provided this opportunity for him to follow his dream of farming.”

Jarrod’s future plans are to keep the farm in a position to allow his children the same opportunity to live and work on the farm and carry on with their family farming tradition.
