Putnam's 'fall feast' will nourish agriculture chief's 2018 plans



It's a seasonal horn of plenty, politically speaking.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is holding a "fall feast" Wednesday evening at his home in Tallahassee to benefit Florida Grown, a political committee that will help the Republican official finance his expected candidacy for governor in 2018. Tickets started at $1,500 each and supporters who raise $5,000 or more are on the host committee.

Several recent big-money donors to Florida Grown include the Florida Retail Federation's political committee, which gave $35,000; Dosal Tobacco Company, $25,000; The St. Joe Company, $20,000; Amscot Financial, $10,000; and the Florida Biomass Growers Association, $10,000.

A copy of the "fall feast" invite, sure to feature farm-to-table food that has long been a priority of Putnam's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. A copy of the invite is here.
