Amanda Huber –
Amanda Huber has been the editor of Peanut Grower magazine
since 1999 and Southeast editor of Cotton Farming since
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.
