Amanda Huber – Editor
Amanda Huber has been the editor of Peanut Grower magazine since 1999 and Southeast editor of Cotton Farming since 2000.
Huber’s experience in the peanut industry began in 1992 when she served as executive director of the Florida Peanut Producers Association. Through this experience, she gained a knowledge and understanding of the industry by being involved in various issues and events, including the 1996 Farm Bill.
By continuing to be actively involved in the industry, Huber is better able to identify topics and provide news stories to fulfill the mission of Peanut Grower. She also attends meetings and field days to provide news and information for Cotton Farming.
Huber, a Florida native, attended the University of Florida where she earned two bachelor’s degrees in agronomy and agricultural communications in 1992. In 2002, she completed a master’s degree in agricultural communications.
Her current occupation combines two of her passions: agriculture and writing. Huber now lives on the family farm in Bronson, Fla., where she grew up.
