Ag by the Numbers – Up on the Rural Rooftops

Santa will be very busy this Christmas Eve visiting people all over the world. DeKalb County has 2,300 farms, all of which Santa and his reindeer will deliver presents.

Rudolph and his fellow reindeer love visiting DeKalb County where 3,800 acres of hay are grown. Hay is the 4th largest crop in the county, and provides a tasty treat for the reindeer team.
